PSYCHO (1960)

Psycho was seen as a dramatic departure from Hitchcock’s previous film NORTH BY NORTHWEST having been filmed on a low budget, in black-and-white, and by a television crew. The film initially received mixed reviews, but outstanding success prompted critical re-evaluation. Psycho was nominated for four Oscars including Best director for Hitchcock. Psycho is now considered one of Hitchcock’s best films and praised as a major work of cinematic art by international film critics and scholars. Often ranked among the greatest films of all time it set a new level of acceptability for violence, deviant behaviour and sexuality in American films, and is widely considered to be the earliest example of the slasher film genre.

REAR WINDOW (1954)

A wheelchair-bound photographer spies on his neighbours from his apartment window and becomes convinced one of them has committed murder. Hitchcock made a career out of indulging our voyeuristic tendencies and he never excited them more,or with more gleeful awareness than here. “This is the most bittersweet of Hitchcockian suspense-romances. Make no mistake about it: Rear Window is as much of a romance as it is a brilliant exercise in suspense.” N.YTIMES. “The film leaps off the screen with a thrilling immediacy” ROLLING STONE.
