The Tenant (1976) is one of Roman Polanski's best films. He put a lot of emotion and energy into this movie. He managed to create a cold and uncaring world that his character (Another Polanski alter-ego) lives in. A man who's shattered persona is just a hair away from losing it all completely. When he finally finds an apartment, the loneliness that he feels and the isolation treatment he receives from all of those around drives him ever so close to the very brink of insanity . The superintendent tells him a story about what happened to the last tenant. A horrific accident that befell her. No one knows what caused her to lose it either. Curious, he decides to visit her at the local hospital where she was admitted. It's there that he learns a very horrifying secret behind who she is and what has happened to her. This movie is part of a loosely linked trilogy that has Rosemary's Baby and Repulsion as part of that circle. These films all have one thing in common. People who cannot adapt to a cold and cruel world and go bonkers. The Tenant is a very underrated classic thriller/horror film. Polanski made this movie after his little underage trisk he had in California. Being a true artist, he had managed to incorporate is experiences in the United States and his own personal problems in creating a masterpiece. Excellent example of what a motivated Polanski can accomplish. Strongly recommended.
