Description
British Quad (30" X 40"). Overshadowed by the eerily similar "Psycho" from the same year, Michael Powell's film also takes a serial killer as its protagonist and proceeds to study him under the same psychological scrutiny. Powell treats his character with more pathos than Alfred Hitchcock and confronts the theme of voyeurism more explicitly. Due to the controversial subject, British critics -- who had already soured on the idiosyncratic Powell and Emeric Pressburger films that have ascended to classics today -- essentially destroyed the director's career. Only decades later did Martin Scorsese resurrect the film as an unheralded masterpiece and an influence on his own work. This British Quad features the best art on the film, an appropriately Modernist design that suggests the voyeurism theme while also evoking the terrifying mood. The professional restoration has made the fold lines and the border's crease marks almost invisible.
