Inspired by the Jack the Ripper murders and a novel by Marie Belloc Lowndes, Alfred Hitchcock’s third feature is the film where he claimed his cinematic voice, launching tropes he would return to often—mixing suspense, menace, death, humor, and fetish with sophisticated and ‘trick’ visual language. A neighbor may not be all he seems, setting up a game of cat-and-mouse which reaches tensions of an almost unbearable proportion. Made in Hitchcock’s 20s, the film is raw, but exhilarating cinema throughout. The U.S. premiere of Neil Brand’s new score will be performed by Jacobs School of Music students. Silent film with English intertitles. Contains mature content.
