32a. Blow Up

English / 1966 / 111 min. / Michelangelo Antonioni

Thomas is a London fashion photographe. One day he thinks he may have photographed something far more sinister: a murder. After taking pictures in the park, Thomas is horrified to find an ambiguous image lurking on the edge of the frame, which could be a shadow, but looks like a gun. The only thing clear is that the woman  in the photo has appeared at his studio — and wants the pictures he took.



33. Rear Window

English / 1954 / 112 min. / Alfred Hitchcock

Professional photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries breaks his leg while getting an action shot at an auto race. Confined to his New York apartment, he spends his time looking out of the rear window observing the neighbors. He begins to suspect that a man across the courtyard may have murdered his wife. Jeff enlists the help of his high society fashion-consultant girlfriend Lisa Freemont and his visiting nurse Stella to investigate.


34. The Lives of Others

German / 2006 / 137 min. / Florian von Donnersmarck

Set in East Berlin during the mid-1980s, The Lives of Others chronicles the consequences of the Minister of Culture’s decision to investigate a playwright and his lover. The complex, lucid script and the somber camerawork establish an atmosphere of fear, doubt, and suspicion, topped with superb performances.
