SCREENING OF MARNIE
AND LECTURE BY RAYMOND BELLOUR
THE MARNIE COLOR
OCTOBER 6, 2000,
$6 ($3 WALKER MEMBERS)
Noted French film theorist and author Raymond Bellour hosts a screening
of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller Marnie, followed by a psychoanalytic
reading of the film. Bellour is the author and editor of a dozen books
on literature, film, cultural criticism, and critical theory. He has long
been recognized as one of the leading proponents of the "textual analysis"
of film, and several of his essays on Hitchcock are internationally regarded
as groundbreaking meditations on the relation between psychoanalysis,
narrative, and spectacle. In Marnie, Tippi Hedren plays the title
character, a kleptomaniac haunted by vivid visions whenever specific colors
trigger her memory; Sean Connery plays her boss who tries to help her
come to her senses. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 1964, U.S., 129 minutes.
