I watched this movie on the way to China last year.The whole thing is utterly miserable and continues to get worse as it unfolds. Margit Carstensten's psychosis and neurosis cause her to have a mental break down. She walks edlessesy through her mansion in 1970's YSL looking mens suits. The set design and costumes are spot on- make sure to check out the plants that inhabit her overgrown German solarium.
Brian DePalma 1973
This movie has amazing 70's interiors that contain lots of tonal carpeting. Margot Kidder stars in this movie about two siamese twins that are separated in late adolescence. Great music, with a score by Bernard Herman who did Phycho and Vertigo.
Robert Altman 1977
Starring Sissy Spacek, Shelly Duval, and Janice Rule. Apparently Altman imagined this movie in a dream. The palate is dusty and sunbleached with images of the southwestern landscape. A desolate resort town with desert bars and strip malls is the setting. Nothing about this movie is logical or lucid, which is the best thing about it. It reminds me alot of another great surrealist chic flick- Celine and Julie Go Boating (also from the 70's with amazing costumes and hypnotic images).
