Cat People

11/24/2018 | Northwest Film Forum

Film & Media Arts Capitol Hill/Central District

Schrader applies his dark, twisted vision to Jacques Tourneur’s classic of the same name. Starring a sinewy Nastassja Kinski, Cat People blurs the lines between erotica, fantasy, and horror. The film has gone on to become a cult favorite, and is most widely known for its title song performed by David Bowie. Cat People is a film that begs to be seen on a big screen, a deft balance of garish neon excess and art-house introspection. Schrader, never one to shy away from controversy, carefully tiptoes closer and closer towards the limits of good taste in this undeniable audience pleaser.
