Big Screen Big Apple- Death Watch(1980) Sat. Feb. 19th at 9:30 PM

IMDB says - "Roddy has a camera implanted in his brain. He is then hired by a television producer to film a documentary of terminally ill Katherine, without her knowledge. His footage will then be run on the popular TV series, "Death Watch"..."

Death Watch(1980) is a French Sci-Fi film starring Harvey Keitel as a human camera. Spectacle describes the film as a "prophetic tale of a dying woman hounded by a reality television program is an eerie and elliptical sci-fi gem". I love old sci-fi movies that fairly accurately predict the rise of reality TV. Even though I knew very little about the existence of Death Watch, the subject matter and star of the show are enough to make me want to head down to Spectacle to check it out.
