“Repulsion” (1965) by Roman Polanski - Ventures into the world of mental disease and the crumbling of a mind, seeping down into the murky claws of Madness. Set in London during the 60’s in the era of the “Sexual liberation” society where beginning to have the freedom of sexual expression and flirtatious behaviour from both male and female was in full Swing on the streets.
The cracks and deformations that appear throughout the home of Carol are a reflection of the instability of her mind, hands that burst through the walls groping at her flesh, could be seen as the lecherous male society that constantly cat-talk and ogle Carol or maybe the perverted hands of her father. “They are more plausibly (and more tragically) the echoes of a very real trauma that Carol experienced in her past”.
