Peeping Tom

Michael Powell’s impeccable film about a shy, mild-mannered cameraman-turned-killer is a must-see.

Certificate 15

This once-controversial, unusually compassionate portrait of a shy, mild-mannered cameraman (Böhm) who also happens to be a serial killer is a genuinely Freudian study of pathological voyeurism. Leo Marks’ script, rich in ironies, insights and resonance, is turned by Powell – who appears in a small, significant role – into a brilliant, multi-levelled meditation on Eros and Thanatos, the psyche and the cinema.

The screening on Friday 24 July 18:20 will be introduced by Nathalie Morris, BFI National Archive Curator.
