After moving to Hollywood, Hitchcock created several masterpieces of cinema including Vertigo (1958) and Psycho (1960). Vertigo has been recently voted by critics as the best film ever, overtaking Citizen Kane. Together we will explore Hitchcock's dark films about human obsession. Taking a shower still fills many people with dread and foreboding thanks to the Hitchcock modern Horror classic of 1960. A full analysis of Hitchcock's masterful technique and influences will be the central focus of this lecture. The French New Wave critics of Cahiers du Cinema argued that Hitchcock’s films should be regarded as artistic masterworks.
John Francis is an inspirational speaker who has taught film, art and pedagogy at universities, plus delivered lectures and workshops in the USA, Beijing, Malaysia and the UK. Initially trained as a painter, he went on to be artist in residence for the state of Texas. Later in his career, John produced and directed several short films and animations.
