Our take

Hitchcock’s masterpiece topped Sight & Sound’s poll of the greatest films, cementing a new generation’s love for this dizzyingly perverse romance that was dismissed in 1958. A psychothriller about the depths of masculine obsession and fantasy, its unparalleled beauty achieves a sinister sublimity.
