觸目驚心

  • Dir: 希治閣

  • 美國, 1960, 109分鐘, DCP

由於男友欠債累累又分隔兩地,女文員只能和他每星期一次於午飯時段在酒店溫存。不夠喉的她為了和男友雙宿雙棲,不惜虧空公款,途中在冷清的汽車酒店投宿,卻在浴室被虐殺。浴室一場是希治閣最毛骨悚然的場面,本片也是論者覺得希治閣賤視女性的一大罪證。直視自己性慾的女主角死於非命,帶出電影史上數一數二的變態角色Norman Bates。他對刻薄母親千依百順,女性溝通有障礙,卻有哲學家的洞察力和一顆孤寂心靈。被害者及加害者就如同一枚硬幣的兩面,希治閣把觀眾拋入一個道德紊亂卻又無比現實的世界。

1961 金球獎最佳女配角
2001 美國電影學院百大驚嚇電影第一位
