“Instinct’s a wonderful thing, isn’t it, Mark? A pity *it* can’t be photographed.”

Peeping Tom (1960) d. Michael Powell

A long-time favorite; watched it for the first time in years. Still wonderful and scary no matter how many viewings and years pass. The color, the darkness, the meta-directing and performances, the tension—both filmic and psychological—and the brief breaks from it, the music and the silences. And Anna Massey is always lovely to see. This is definitely a movie that I think everyone should see—especially if you’re into film and/or psychology.
