The Tenant

Dir. Roman Polanski (1976). Polanski’s English-language, Paris-set creepfest may be the director’s quintessential movie—an exercise in urban paranoia and mental disintegration that echoes or anticipates everything from Repulsion and Rosemary’s Baby to Bitter Moon and The Pianist. Polanski himself plays the eponymous protagonist, a furtive Polish-born Frenchman who rents the apartment of a recent suicide and is gradually driven mad by his mysteriously hostile neighbors. It’s a comedy—naturally.
