The authoress tries to identify the meanings of 'Don't Look Now' that are implied in Daphne du Maurier's short story on which Roeg's film is based. In her view Roeg enters into a discussion on the problem of seeing (looking/watching) and asks about the identity of the hero who is in the ring of death. The ring is delineated by a number of elements that appear in view of the main hero. What manifests in the ring is what materializes in the picture. She uses Deleuze's concept of crystal-image and the categories of actual and virtual image, which she thinks integrate in the film the past and the present. The reference to Bergson's paramnesia (illusion of déja-vu or already having been there) serves to accentuate the contemporaneous existence of past and present images.
