"Not only Hitchcock's greatest film: the most intelligent and disturbing horror film ever made."
– Peter Cowie
"Hitchcock's best film. A masterpiece by any standard."
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
(1960, Michael Powell) The bodies pile up as camera assistant Carl Boehm moonlights as “private” photographer of scantily clad women, while working on his own “documentary” with the world’s most lethal tripod. Approx. 101 min. 35mm.
“Powell’s masterpiece… a seductive thriller about the sub-rosa fascinations of the cinema.”
– Dave Kehr
“The movies make us into voyeurs. We sit in the dark, watching other people’s lives. It is the bargain the cinema strikes with us, although most films are too well-behaved to mention it. Michael Powell’s Peeping Tom, a 1960 movie about a man who filmed his victims as they died, broke the rules and crossed the line… His film is a masterpiece precisely because it does not let us off the hook.”
– Roger Ebert
“If anything deserves the ‘dark masterpiece’ tag, this does: a brilliant satirical insight into the neurotic, pornographic element in the act of filming, more relevant than ever in the age of reality television.”
– The Guardian
