DEATH WATCH

Part human drama and part futuristic cautionary tale, the fifth feature by the late, great Bertrand Tavernier focuses on Roddy (Harvey Keitel), who, after having a camera implanted into his brain, is hired by the producer of the TV series Death Watch to record a documentary on the terminally ill Katherine (Romy Schneider)  without her knowledge. This fascinating look at society in decay is also deeply moving—and becomes even more poignant knowing that Schneider herself died tragically only two years later at the age of 44.
