1958 USA / 128 mins / Cert: PG / Director: Alfred Hitchcock

A San Francisco detective suffering from acrophobia investigates the strange activities of an old friend’s wife, all the while becoming dangerously obsessed with her. This classic Hitchcock film is often cited as one of the defining works of his career. Attracting significant scholarly criticism, it replaced ‘Citizen Kane’ (1941) as the best film ever made in the 2012 British Film Institute’s ‘Sight & Sound’ critics’ poll.
