Peeping Tom (#78) (w/Everything I Learned from Movies)

It’s time to get spooky just days away from Halloween as Brendan and Jason welcome back Steve and Izzy of Everything I Learned from Movies to discuss Peeping Tom (#78 on the list). Many things are discussed like the similarities between this film and Psycho (released two months later), the sexual imagery surrounding the murders, the controversy of the film essentially killing off Michael Powell’s career, the dance/murder sequence, the first on-screen appearance of nudity in a British film and much more.

Next week: Jason is away so a special episode of What Were They Thinking? will be aired in which he was the guest.


In two weeks: The guys talk about sequels/remakes of some more movies on the BFI Top 100 in the return of their And Now for Something Completely Similar mini-series. First up: the 2004 remake of Alfie
