This collection is a critical re- assessment of that role, long overdue. It highlights the bold and dazzling diversity of his work as well as recurrent themes and obsessions that have had such a powerful impact upon audiences throughout the world. Films discussed include Knife in the Water (1962), Repulsion (1965), Rosemary's Baby (1968), Chinatown (1974), Death and the Maiden (1994) and The Pianist (2002).
