A must watch movie for classic film lovers. Repulsion (1965) Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser In London, Belgian immigrant Carol Ledoux shares an apartment with her older sister Helen, and works as a manicurist at a beauty salon. Helen uses the word “sensitive” to describe Carol’s overall demeanor, which is almost like she walks around in a daze, rarely speaking up about anything. When she does speak up, it generally is about something against one of those few issues on which she obsesses, such as Helen’s boyfriend Michael’s invasion of her space at the apartment. That specific issue may be more about men in general than just Michael’s actions, as witnessed by Carol being agitated by hearing Helen and Michael’s lovemaking, and she not being able to rebuff the advances effectively of a male suitor, Colin, who is infatuated with her. One of those other obsessive issues is noticing cracks and always wanting to fix them. While Helen and Michael leave on a vacation to Pisa, Italy, Carol chooses largely to lock herself in the apartment, ditching work. There, she is almost hypnotized

75 mins Filmed on a budget of a mere $40,000 Roger Corman – the King of B-movies – here, again, breaks in a young director who would go on to be one of the most critically acclaimed in the business.
Though not Coppola’s first directorial effort (That honor goes to ‘Tonight for Sure’), this film stands out for being his first full-length feature.
Borrowing heavily from Hitchcock’s massive hit ‘Psycho’, the young Coppola was able to make a film – though thoroughly a B picture – that show promise and hints at the career to come.
Coppola would go on to direct such films as: ‘Patton’ , ‘The Godfather’, ‘Apocalypse Now’, and produce a number of other classics.
