Immortalized as its Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock nevertheless also radically challenged the Hollywood system’s norms and cinematic language. The explicitly experimental filmmakers featured in this program have in turn appropriated Hitchcock’s work as their own raw material. First, Les Leveque renders Hitchcock dizzyingly kaleidoscopic with 2 Spellbound and 4 Vertigo. Next, Rea Tajiri’s Hitchcock Trilogy offers poetic deconstructions of Vertigo, Psycho, and Torn Curtain. Finally, Psykho III The Musical is queer video artist Tom Rubnitz’s filmic restaging of Mark Oates’ camp reenactment of Psycho. (2K DCP Presentation)
