Knife in the Water
Dir. Roman Polanski (1962). Polanski went straight to the head of his class with his first (and until The Pianist, his only) Polish feature. This cold-eyed account of sexual gamesmanship in a subtly stylized empty world is the harbinger of his great black comedies, Cul de Sac and The Tenant.
