Top film, so Hitchcock throughout and deserves recognition amongst his greats.

His way of bringing a lighter tone to a gritty story is unique - dinner times with the inspector (and his wife) demonstrates this here.

The best thing about Hitchcock films is the humor. This film does not disappoint. The most disturbing of his films i think, but I feel if he had not been censored all of his films would have had more violent nature.

This was the first Alfred Hitchcock film to show nude scenes.

A thoroughly underrated Hitchcock film. If you're reading this and haven't seen the film, drop what you're doing, and go find a copy of Frenzy. It's just *lovely*.

There's something deeply nauseating about this film. Didn't really like it, even though technically it's as good as any other Hitchcock's creation.

One of Hitch's most underrated flicks. Contains some of the humor of his British roots (the potato sequence), and is indeed strangely disturbing as Pickman points out.

What might be Hitchcock's darkest, grittiest movie has this theme:

Great late-period Hitchcock thriller! I quite enjoyed the London setting, and the dark humour sprinkled throughout made this a really fun experience.

In 1972's Frenzy, Hitchcock tries for a more lurid style, more violent and for the first time, with gratuitous nudity. It's a strange blend that starts off slow, gets rather disturbing, but eventually gets my up-vote. The plot focuses on a man set up, in the eyes of the audience as much as the law, to take the fall for a rash of rape-stranglings. Circumstances are always playing against the protagonist, though the real killer eventually takes a hand too. The first rape-murder we see is bizarre and upsetting, as it should be, but once the shock fades, Hitchcock softens the blow by refusing to show any more rapes, and with his trademark black comedy. He enlivens the investigatory exposition with the detective's gastronomic plight, and turning the focus to the killer, places him in situations where he's bound to make mistakes. That's Hitchcock all over - a comedy of errors where you find yourself tensing up for an evil, disturbed criminal.
