Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

This 1963 classic, a film about anxiety, sexual power, and the violence of nature, is quintessential Hitchcock. The always-provocative cultural critic Camille Paglia draws together the film's aesthetic, technical and mythical qualities, and analyzes its depiction of gender and family relations.


Review:

"Admirers of Paglia's discursive, contentious, hucksterish television persona will enjoy this book's pace and wit. For others, it will read as though dictated rather than written. Her strategy is to take the reader almost shot by shot through the movie, commenting on dramatic, technical and symbolic matters as they occur to her....attention to detail, coupled with a willingness to toss an idea out on the spot, are the main features of Paglia's text."

Keith Miller, Times Literary Supplement, 08/28/1998
