AUTUMN / WINTER 2015
Evoking the very essence of film noir, DISCONNECT expresses the cinematic world of Alfred Hitchcock, driven by the master of suspense’s iconic ice-blonde leading ladies. Visually, film noir is highly expressive, containing fluidity and sensuality. But with a lack in narrative coherence and comprehensive solution of crime, such films focus on dynamic characters and visual style. Said to be Hitchcock’s most personal film, Vertigo (1956), explores an abstract realm where his voyeuristic obsession with image of the woman is exhibited. Interject this with Pyscho (1960), the film that revolutionised the genre of horror, and you have a collection that highlights desires and secret against the anxiety and madness of a Hitchcock thriller.
