The Alfred Hitchcock thriller masterpiece has now been restored and re-released. A macabre tale of voyeurism and murder as a wheelchair-bound photographer is convinced that a neighbor killed his own wife. Caution: Contains adult subject matter.
A new 35mm negative has painstakingly been reconstructed. Now, the chromatic brilliance of Hitchcock’s original vision for the film, from the great artificial sunsets over the “Greenwich Village” sets to the purity of the blacks and whites of Kelly’s wardrobe to the luminous quality of her close ups, has been preserved. Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense, is a very visual director. Much is being said without dialogue in all his works. His films are best appreciated on the big screen.
