Join film and media professor Marc Lapadula for an in-depth look at the work of Alfred Hitchcock, The Master of Suspense.

For many scholars and movie critics, Alfred Hitchcock continues to be regarded as one of the most influential filmmakers in the history of world cinema. With a career that spanned six decades, he has anointed the Master of Suspense with a slew of films that brought audiences to the edge of their seats. But beneath the often shocking surface images lurks a mesmerizing and richly-layered psycho-sexual subtext that, on closer examination, reveals a far more sophisticated artistic ambition than he’s been given credit for. We will attempt to exhume and unravel Hitchcock’s bold intentions to shed the proper light on what this grandmaster of cinema so eloquently expressed in his films. Film clips include The 39 Steps, Notorious, Shadow of a Doubt, Suspicion, Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, North By Northwest, Psycho, and The Birds.

Led by professor of film studies, screenwriter, and producer Marc Lapadula, this interactive seminar will explore the genius of Hitchcock. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of how to watch films critically and understand the lasting legacy of one of the greatest directors in American cinematic history.

This conversation is part of a five-part series on film with Marc Lapadula. Each session is designed as a stand-alone seminar as well as part of the series.
