Episode 96: Peeping Tom (1960)

Special Guests: Laura Mulvey, Adam Lowenstein

Michael Powell's landmark serial killer film, Peeping Tom, is an exercise in terror and voyeurism. Rob and Mike talk about scopophilia, the role of the viewer in cinema, and "the children of Mark Lewis."

Guest Laura Mulvey wrote the seminal essay in Feminist Film Theory, "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema." Guest Adam Lowenstein is Associate Professor of English and Film Studies, as well as Director of the Film Studies Program, at the University of Pittsburgh.
