  1. Always thought Hitchcock did this very well, forcing the viewer to question his voyeuristic tendencies, which we all naturally possess. Films, by their very nature, can’t escape this idea. There’s a wonderful scene in Rear Window when the couple almost witness a rape/assault while spying on a neighbour, and it makes incredibly uncomfortable viewing, for them and for us.
    I haven’t seen Tesis yet but will give it a go; it’s theme is something that’s always fascinated.

  2. Films, by thier nature are voyeuristic. They open windows into other lives for our own viewing pleasure. For some reason we all seem to have this inbred desire to view others, hence the popularity of reality TV. Hitchcock was a great exponent of this as is David Lynch.
