Dementia

Using only sound effects and an eerie score to plumb the mind of a psychopathic killer, experimental filmmaker John Parker foreshadows Roman Polanski’s Repulsion (1965). A young woman wanders the streets in a nightmare through a landscape of mutilations, patricide, and paranoia, waking in her apartment amidst clues that suggest it wasn’t a dream!
