Minneapolis Hitchcock Festival: Suspicion

Even in the sunshine of springtime, the Sixth Annual Hitchcock fest continues to celebrate the dark corners of the psyche. Leading the screenings is the portrait of fractured personae in Psycho (1960), which remains downright disturbing despite the film's pop-culture ubiquity. No less gripping, Suspicion (1941) finds menace in such seemingly innocent objects as a glass of milk. On a lighter note, albeit a macabre one, The Trouble with Harry (1955) concerns the difficulty of disposing of an inconvenient body, while Hitchcock's last film, Family Plot (1976), mixes psychics and kidnappers for a mystery involving false identities, lost inheritance, and (naturally) foul play. Hitchcock aficionados will be especially eager to view The 39 Steps (1935), The Lady Vanishes (1938), and the rarely screened Young and Innocent (1937), three early English works that first suggested the persecution and paranoia that were to become lifelong themes. $8.
