Carving out his own territory in the ’70s field of sexually-charged thrillers with head games in striking locales, Jerzy Skolimowski sustains an enveloping yet disorienting tone. In an isolated picturesque pocket of Devon, mysterious drifter Alan Bates gloms onto experimental sound recordist John Hurt and wife Susannah York, bending her to his will. The score by Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford of Genesis is enhanced with electronics by Rupert Hine.
