In this episode, I talk about Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 psychological horror film, “Don’t Look Now.” It’s about John and Laura Baxter, a British couple who have recently lost their young daughter, Christine, and are living in Venice, Italy when they meet two sisters, one of which is psychic and says she can see and communicate with Christine. The film is based on the Daphne du Maurier short story of the same name. I explore many things in this episode, including the horror of loss and the human longing to know what happens after a loved one dies. At the beginning of the episode, I also discuss the sexual assault and harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein and other men in Hollywood. I question if there will be institutional, systemic change.
