Thoughts on Repulsion

-Would I call this drama, psychological horror, or avant-garde?

-Last image, thoughts, because I have none.

-I'm not very sure I like this. I mean, it's oddly engrossing, watching Carol's (Catherine Denueve) descent into an unexplained madness, and the soundtrack--in which, at first, you can't tell if it's music or a noise within the film--is great, very atmospheric and appropriate. But it also drags in places, and I'm never sure if I'm supposed to sympathise with Carol or not. Also, the entire end was a mindfuck. I'm so confused.
