Hitchcock takes psychological suspense to new heights in this classic starring James Stewart and Kim Novak.
Dir Alfred Hitchcock
With James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes
Probably Hitchcock’s most widely acclaimed film, this boasts a harrowing performance from Stewart as a retired detective hired by an old friend to follow his seemingly distracted wife (Novak, a revelation); when she attempts suicide, he falls madly in love with her... Less a thriller than a study of manic, manipulative, near-necrophile obsession, it’s a memorably corrosive view of male-female relationships.
