Carol’s nipples and bare buttocks are vaguely visible through her thin nightgown in several scenes.
A woman wakes with only a blanket on her on the floor.


A woman hears her sister moaning at night (in two different scenes) as she is having sex in the next room.

A woman is raped by different rapists over multiple nights. None of the scenes include nudity or screaming; for each, we only see many quick-cut close-up shots accompanied by the sound of a ticking clock. In total, this occurs four times in the movie, one of which includes skin, though it is not obvious which part of the human body is being shown.
The landlord tries to rape the leading character.

The film has the harsh and uncomfortable feeling of metal across the aluminum pot. It is better for the weak willed to see less. In his gloom, it is easy to make people nervous and negative, resulting in the feeling of world weariness.

This is a psychological thriller starring the cold and gorgeous French beauty Katrina denoff in her early years. It can apply Freud’s theory as a model of insanity, which is also the basis of western psychological films. People’s works will not be produced out of thin air. Polanski’s tragic childhood has once again mutated into his theme. From the pianist in the water knife, Polanski always closes the individual in a thick wall of ideas. In the alienation of people’s hearts, nightmares make life in a trance about existence and fall into a state of despair and helplessness.

Image, Polanski’s image always has a kind of evil spirit, emitting a suffocating smell like a manhole. In its expression, you can feel people’s loneliness and hopelessness. No matter how many lives there are around them, they will walk through a corridor full of dry people’s arms, and face the side of hell.

Space is still self closed, refusing to communicate with the world and people. Carlo is immersed in the imaginary world, and she can no longer find the feeling of coexistence with people.

At the beginning of the film, he used a face covered by a mask to symbolize social alienation and alienation of human nature.

Carlo is a beautician’s assistant. She is beautiful and beautiful, but her heart is mildewed in autism. Polanski expressed Carlo’s mental state with several shots, close-up of her eyes, guilt of washing her feet in the washbasin and kissing, and such unusual actions truly expressed her spiritual state.

We can recall Polanski’s other films. The doors of those neighbors are always closed. People’s rationality is dispelled under the dual pressure of environment and spirit, but the hidden demons occupy our hearts, making us enemies of ourselves and the world. In psychopathology, there is a title called personality division.

Carlo seems to be such a person. Behind the appearance of coldness and arrogance is a fragile and depressed heart. However, busy people live by themselves. Heart is a distant and funny term.

The insomnia of such patients makes them more restless. Even the groans of her sister’s sexual affairs can become a reaction force and deepen her psychological burden.

She seems to live on earth. In fact, her heart has long dried up. There is no sunshine to shine through such darkness, and no external force to prevent such a collapse. It is just a process accumulated over time. Qualitative change will happen sooner or later.

The rabbit remains in Kun’s bag, the ironing without electricity, the nightmare of rape, and the exaggerated alarm clock sound effect have created disturbing and frightening effects. The masochistic illusion from time to time makes the whole film fall into trance and abnormal emotions, which has become a question to our spiritual world: what are our emotions controlled by, and what can we know about ourselves?!

Carlo, isolated from the conclusion of existence by himself, is self closed. She tortured herself and struggled in her imagination until she killed someone. Through the film, we can see that Polanski still has sympathy for her. The two people she killed have a reason. In a sense, they exacerbated her personality division and promoted her collapse.

The story of cold blood is too simple. In fact, it is still a thrilling and desperate dream repeated by Polanski? Like a person’s childhood, wake up at midnight, see the shadowy trees outside the window, think ghosts are coming? As a psychological thriller, the director mobilized all the elements of the thriller, including distorted sound effects, cold environment, strong light and dark contrast, composition and ending. However, the director not only tells us the story of an individual out of control, but also wants to reflect the characteristics of depression, irritability and indifference in contemporary society through individual events. This is also the view of a director outside Hollywood on the system and social composition.

Young Katrina de novo’s performance in this film is commendable. The cold expression, empty negative eyes and neurotic behavior of her beautiful face deeply deduce Carlo’s process of autism and collapse. As a new actor, it is really valuable.

In the film, Carlo’s mind is a by-product of modern society. The separation and indifference make the heart lose the basic point of trust. The fragile people are locked in the cocoon of themselves, and let nothingness and illusion cover the truth and can’t extricate themselves. Finally, they become persecuted paranoia type patients. The spiritual world in life is still an unknown field for human beings. In the face of pressure, fear, failure and frustration, some people slide to the back of the social benchmark and become an alien in the eyes of others.

Polanski started with this film and directed a series of thrillers until the later strange tenant reached the peak of speculation. However, everything changes. His film has the harsh and uncomfortable feeling of metal across an aluminum pot. It is better for those with weak will to watch less. It is easy to make people nervous and negative in his gloom, So as to produce the feeling of world weariness.

As a low-cost film and Polanski’s first English film, he has gained a firm foothold in Hollywood. His gloom has also become his symbol. He continues to change in his thrillers, casting a haze on the seemingly calm world. His exploration has left valuable experience for thrillers. As a result, cold-blooded thriller won the Silver Bear award at the 1965 Berlin Film Festival.

[Note 1] persecution paranoia type: patients who firmly believe that they are persecuted, deceived, tracked, poisoned, slandered or treated by conspiracy often become extremely cautious and defensive everywhere. Small insults may be amplified by patients and become the core of paranoia, often bringing relevant people into their own paranoia world.
