This is stunning, superb writing. I have rarely read something that is so intelligent yet evocative and personal. It feels almost confessional. I hope you have not murdered a man, lovely Kim/Carol/Catherine...

When I was in grad school in the early '80s, I took a beautiful blonde to see Repulsion. (And I'll admit I was intrigued by the confluence of my own attraction and Polanski's exposition of maleness.)

Afterward, she told me she felt personally violated by the film, that it had provoked dark truths she did not even know were true--until she watched the film.

Your piece perfectly captures our experience back then. (By the way, we actually managed to remain friends.) Beautifully written, too.

You'll be pleased to know that Criterion just announced this for a July release. Finally!

Lovely piece on a beatifully ugly film.
