Under Capricorn Yönetmen Alfred Hitchcock
I think this non-thriller is worth far more attention than it usually gets, even if I must categorically reject the judgment of the Young Turks of the mid-‘50s Cahiers du Cinéma who voted it Hitchcock’s greatest (at the same time that they picked Mr. Arkadin 1955 as Welles’ greatest, no doubt for polemical reasons).

Narratively, this is standard Hitchcock fare, but Under Capricorn aesthetically deviates from earlier riffs on the same theme through the director’s sophisticated use of Technicolor. The colors in this film are far more florid than they are in Rope, and Hitchcock employs contrasting shades to delineate, among other things, his characters’ traits, interior and otherwise.

Made just after The Paradine Case and Rope, Under Capricorn shares those films’ obsessively intricate takes, although the biggest plus here comes from genius Jack Cardiff’s Technicolor. Formalists tend to worship Under Capricorn, and this is one gorgeous film… So yes, Under Capricorn looks good. It plays, however, as po-faced and rancid, a romantic melodrama about love with an emotionally abusive spouse — Gaslight, if she tried to work things out with Charles Boyer.
