Peeping Tom (1960)

Peeping Tom is a shattering experience—it wakes us up from the movie-dream, forces us to take part in its own making. It’s an aggressive film, a threat—and that threat, no doubt, is what provoked the film’s first reviewers. Powell takes away the protective darkness of the movie theater and leaves us face to face with our own dark motives for movie-going—our desire to see and not be seen, and the unnatural power that that position gives us. He exposes us as voyeurs. That would be outrageous enough, but Powell doesn’t stop there. After the initial shock of exposure has passed, Peeping Tom becomes, disturbingly, a very compassionate film. It doesn’t lay down a moral dictum against movies (that, in any case, would be grotesquely hypocritical—making a film that condemns films). Instead, it draws us into a sense of complicity, of shared pleasures—sweeter, perhaps, because they are forbidden.
