Alfred Hitchcock remains the most famous of film-makers. Why was he so successful in enticing us to share his fears and desires? Cultural critic Peter Conrad can date the start of his Hitchcock obsession to his first boyhood viewing of Hitchcock's Psycho, one afternoon in Tasmania some forty years ago. The master's grip on his imagination has never slackened since. Now Conrad explains how Hitchcock's mastery of the mechanical art enabled him to unnerve and excite us in ways that no artist had previously managed.
