Best Shot: Repulsion

This blog has been long dead, but when Repulsion was selected for Hit Me With Your Best Shot, I knew I wanted to participate again, since it's one of those movies that started the era of serious cinephilia for me around the time I turned 20 (was 2009 really six years ago already?). In fact, I had already screengrabbed my favorite shot from it a few years ago:

Cracks in walls/pavement/whatnot is a recurring motif in Repulsion, but I think it's at its most subtle here. This is the image that often comes to my mind when I think of someone "losing it", or even when I'm simply alone in a dark hallway.
