Knife in the Water

The promo photo for this film is two shots after this one. I'm not arguing. Knife in the Water is full of great angles but the sexual/violent/paternal tension here between Malanowicz and Niemczyk is almost hard to watch. Then it's all perfectly, absurdly diffused by the girl playing with a giant inflatable alligator in the background.
It also sounds amazing. The irritating way she's yells could almost have a musical meter.

I am adding Zygmunt Malanowicz to my list of people I have to try to sleep with when I go back in time.
