Alfred Hitchcock Estados Unidos, 1948

Obsessive Cinema Disorder (OCD)'s rating of the film Festim Diabólico

This is a whimsy reading of "Crime and Punishment", where the idea resembles this plot: the thesis that superior men are allowed to murder inferior men because they're self-justificatory above the moral standards. In the end, we find that Brandon twists this words and his killing his done only by its self-proclaimed power and narcissistic vanity: "The power to kill can be just as satisfying as the power to create".
