Cabaret Cinema

Friday, January 20, 2017
9:30 PM–11:59 PM

1958, Alfred Hitchcock, USA, 129 min.

Wtih James Stewart; Kim Novak

Forcibly retired cop Scottie Ferguson (played by James Stewart) is pulled into a new case – a private investigation that leads to an reincarnate obsession—all underscored by a plangent, pulsating score by Bernard Hermann.

“One of the landmarks—not merely of the movies, but of 20th-century art.”

—Dave Kehr

“Why is this movie Hitchcock’s masterpiece? Because no movie plunges us more deeply into the dizzying heart of erotic obsession.”

—David Ansen


About Cabaret Cinema: Perception

Can the truth truly be trusted? Is it objective or rather tinted by our experience and memories? Perhaps there is no better medium with which to explore these questions than the illusory cinema. In that pursuit we have invited scientists to introduce films that potently demonstrate that much of our perception is clouded by the distorted lens of our assumptions and desires.
