’60s Hitchcock

3 Episodes

By the 1960s, with multiple masterpieces already to his name, Alfred Hitchcock kept on innovating, pushing the boundaries of on-screen violence and harnessing his technical mastery to create commercial entertainment that doubled as a vehicle to explore his darkest and most personal obsessions. The shocking modernism of PSYCHO, the unfathomable existential terror of THE BIRDS, and the perverse psychological mystery of MARNIE—each is among the Master of Suspense’s most stylistically and thematically complex films and a key to understanding his career-long fascination with the links between sex, violence, guilt, and voyeurism.
