35 mm, rewatched. A London that is a theater of materials, colors and spatiality of novel's imagery. A story that is a theater of influences: Bresson, Melville, the thriller. And Michael Powell, to whom the film is dedicated and from whose "Peeping Tom" inherits the otherness of a cinematic desolation (also Hitchcock's "Frenzy"). A study of cinematographic characters that is a text on the disinherited of capitalism.
