White of the Eye
Directed by Donald Cammell
A woman suspects her loving husband is a vicious serial killer in this intense thriller from Donald Cammell (DEMON SEED). Joan (Cathy Moriarty) has been with Paul (David Keith) for nearly ten years, and though their relationship hasn’t been easy, she’s crazy about him. But when police start connecting Paul to a series of gruesome killings of housewives, Joan pokes around Paul’s hiding spots, and discovers some disturbing information about the man she thought she knew. Overlooked upon its release, this gripping Hitchcockian gem is ripe for rediscovery.

beautiful, sad, haunting
Solid eighties horror/thriller. Fast moving.
For a movie that has few surprises, it's very watchable. High 80s aesthetics -- camerawork, editing, production design, music, wardrobe. Like the opera that plays throughout, you have to allow this movie to do the thing it wants to do and not force your expectations on it.
Just completely bizarre and nonsensical, I assumed it was written/directed by someone who's first language wasn't english because of how weird it is but I wasn't bored anyway.
