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.
