DAVID STRATTON’s GREAT BRITAIN RETRO FILM FESTIVAL
presents
PEEPING TOM (MA15+)

“The film that is generally believed to have ruined the career of the great director Michael Powell, this obsessive thriller about a serial killer (Karl Bohm) who works in a film studio and who was traumatised by the cruel treatment of his father (portrayed in brief flashbacks by Powell himself) was greeted with derision on its initial release but has since become a cult classic.” DAVID STRATTON.

“REALLY DISTURBING! .THE BRITISH PYSCHO…ALONG WITH FELLINI’S 8/12 the two films that capture the danger of film making..50 years later it speaks directly to the world we’re in..the morbid urge to gaze.” MARTIN SCORCESE.

The Sunday Times’ Dilys Powell, who in 1960 thought it “essentially vicious”, says now “Today, I am convinced it is a masterpiece”.
