Samenvatting

De psychotische assistent-cameraman in een filmstudio gebruikt zijn camera-apparatuur om zijn moorden op sekswerkers vast te leggen. Hij filmt ook nietsvermoedende vrouwen voor zijn documentaire over angst. Peeping Tom onderzoekt jeugdtrauma’s, seksuele crises en moordlustige wraak als volwassene.

The formal potency of Peeping Tom represents one of Powell’s most daring rebukes, even if it took his career down with it. The movie will ask dangerous questions about its own system but refuse to answer them. It will elevate sleazy, sometimes preposterous pulp material to art by dragging respectability towards the gutter. It will recognize that some things are too sacred, too private, or too dangerous to have a camera record them. And then it will record them anyway.

[Peeping Tom] might be considered the grandfather to the omnipresent found footage horror genre and it inspired Jim McBride’s classic, scathingly self-reflexive David Holzman’s Diary—and virtually every self-critical documentary since. The film remains relevant today not simply because of its vast influence, but because of the fundamental truth Powell expresses about the dark heart of cinema.

Reviled and fetishized, Michael Powell’s undeniable—if unsavory—classic, which opens in an excellent new print for a run at Film Forum, was the original first-person horror film. Released in Britain barely a month before Psycho had its American premiere, Powell’s serial-killer saga is no less perverse and perhaps even more disturbing.
