On the cinematic art of the soul - Alfred Hitchcock as a psychologist

14 October 2020, 19:00 - 20:00

Web-Lecture 3
Prof. Dr. Dirk Blothner

War of the (Hour) Worlds

In Hitchcock's films there are almost no duels or fighting scenes. They rarely show physical violence. But you can see many examples of unnoticed, psychological violence in them. It comes about because the mental figures are practically always fighting for their survival. Once they have formed, they do not want to be broken and absorbed by other figures. Thus Hitchcock's films - admittedly with a good sense of humor - often show a war of the worlds of the hours. They transfer the principle of the "homo homini lupus" ("Man is a wolf to man") established by Thomas Hobbes in 1651 to everyday life.

Excerpts from the following films: Downhill, A Lady Disappears, I Fight for You, Notorious, The Invisible Third, Marnie
