Knife In The Water

4

Roman Polanski's mightily impressive debut boasts three characters, a boat and a vast expanse of sea. It ain't much, but it's all the diminutive Pole needs to craft a tortured study of alienation, violence and crafty one-upmanship, sexual tension bubbling to the surface after a couple foolishly decide to give a young hitchhiker a spin on their yacht. Economic, claustrophobic and strikingly shot in monochrome, Knife In The Water plumbs the murky depths of the male psyche with devastating results.
