Course description
In this course, we will study Hitchcock's films using a variety of research approaches. Following the Auteur theory, we will examine themes, characters, film style, aesthetics and critique that characterize Hitchcock's work, as well as diachronically the development of these characteristics over the years in the films.
In addition, various theories e.g. psychoanalysis and feminism, will expand the discussion on Hitchcock's themes such as the subject's identity, place in society and sexual orientation.
By examining Hitchcock's selected filmography we will examine issues of popular narrative cinema and spectatorship in general and the manipulation of the spectator in the suspense genre in particular. We will analyze reflexive techniques in Hitchcock's films as well as inter-textual references to his films in the work of directors like Spielberg, Kubrick, the Coen brothers, Cronenberg, Coppola, Demme among others
