OBSESSION
1976, Sony Repertory, 98 min, USA, Dir: Brian De Palma.

Cliff Robertson is haunted by the death of his wife and daughter following a botched kidnapping, but he gets a shot at redemption when he meets a new woman (Genevieve Bujold) with an uncanny resemblance to his dead spouse. Screenwriter Paul Schrader and director Brian De Palma pay glorious homage to the work of Alfred Hitchcock with this romantic, hallucinatory thriller, which includes one of Bernard Herrmann's best scores - one that builds upon and possibly even tops his classic work with the Master of Suspense himself.


MARNIE
1964, Universal, 130 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Wealthy Mark Rutland (Sean Connery)’s erotic obsession with thief Marnie (Tippi Hedren) gradually evolves into full-fledged but excessively manipulative love as he tries to "help" her overcome a past trauma.
