If you think Psycho is the 1960s' best portrait of a parentally warped, sexually stunted, demented killer, you may learn a little something from Peeping Tom. While no one can outdo Hitchcock at his own game, Michael Powell was a master in his own right and Peeping Tom manages to deliver lots of suspense and that queasy, psychosexual panicked feeling that we all know and love, while also acting as a unique expression of screen theory in cinema. Karl Böhm stars as a young man who works in a film studio by day and moonlights as a cheesecake photographer, but his real obsession lies with filming the dying moments of beautiful women.
