SLOW OBLIVION











THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTED, d. Jean Rollin (1980)


Jean Rollin made beautiful films, but they tend to be rather slooooooooow. Night of the Hunted is an atypical subject for him (there are no vampires for a start) and has an urban dystopian feel, the sort of thing that commentators now rush to call Ballardian but, in 1980, was probably considered a David Cronenberg rip off. I like films that are set in the very near future, especially old ones.
