Bei Anruf Mord Regie Alfred Hitchcock
Sometimes taken to be a stagebound, minor work, Dial M for Murder is in fact one of the Master’s signal achievements, underappreciated because it is so rarely seen in its original 3D format; no less than Lifeboat, Rope, or Rear Window, it was designed from the ground up around its unifying visual conceit.

While we’re not about to make a case for the film’s elevation to the ranks of the Hitchcock masterpieces, the film remains a wonder of technical and aesthetic invention, a masterclass in transforming ( but crucially not dispensing with) its dialogue-driven theatricality into something often startlingly cinematic.

Dial M for Murder is a pitiless, darkly hilarious act of self-excoriation, obsessed as it is with the mirror image of its creator, a man who not only depends on control for his livelihood, but also perversely sees it as a gateway towards true liberation.
