'Repulsion' at the BFI Southbank Mediatheque

I spent a couple of enjoyable hours at the BFI Southbank Mediatheque yesterday. 

Where else can you access a huge catalogue of interesting / obscure / classic / cult films on your own personal screen with headphones for free?

I decided to watch Roman Polanski's pyschological thriller 'Repulsion', starring Catherine Deneuve as a Belgian girl living in 1960s South Kensington ,who over the course of the film suffers some sort of horrible mental collapse and gradually descends into a state of mental paranoia/psychosis with slightly horrifying results.

It was very dark, very sinister and quite scary. Similar in style and content to 'Rosemary's Baby'. Highly recommended. Go see it!
