Look Both Ways

Look Both Ways ★★ 2005 (PG-13)

In Watt's first feature-length film, she examines our fears of dying and death. Artist Meryl (Clarke) is constantly imagining disasters (depicted in animated sequences), but then she witnesses a real tragedy—a man getting killed by a train. Local photographer Nick (McInnes), who's just been told he has cancer, takes a picture of the man's anguished widow, which is printed on the newspaper's front page along with reporter Andy's (Hayes) somewhat brutal story. Nick and Meryl make a tentative connection while struggling with fear, loneliness, hope, and forgiveness. The secondary characters and their problems (including an unplanned pregnancy) are a distraction but the film's overall quirkiness tends to work well. 100m/C DVD . AU Justine Clarke, Anthony Hayes, Andrew S. Gilbert, Daniela Farinacci, William McInnes, Lisa Flanagan, Maggie Dence, Sacha Horler, Edwin Hodgeman; D: Sarah Watt; W: Sarah Watt; C: Ray Argall; M: Amanda Brown.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
