Cul-De-Sac: The Criterion Collection

Roman Polanski orchestrates a mental ménage à trois in this slyly absurd tale of paranoia from the director's golden 1960s period. Donald Pleasance and Françoise Dorleac star as a withdrawn couple whose isolated house is infiltrated by a rude, burly American gangster on the run, played by Lionel Stander. The three engage in a game of shifting identities and sexual and emotional humiliations. Cul-De-Sac is an evocative, claustrophobic, and morbidly funny tale of the modern world in chaos.
