Images (1972)

Robert Altman directs Susannah York, René Auberjonois and Cathryn Harrison in this psychological horror where a children’s author at her country retreat loses all sense of reality as people and events blur into each other.

No idea what was happening half the time but this seemed to have a better grasp on the enigmas about female identity and gender politics it wants to warp and unpick than Romero’s Season of the Witch or Bergman’s Autumn Sonata. Certainly the tricks it plays on the audience keep you unsettled but curious throughout.
