The intensity of “Frenzy” (1972)

Pale Writer

This review contains major plot point spoilers. Don’t read any further if you haven’t seen the film.

Frenzy is, in my humble opinion, Hitchcock’s most intense and disturbing film. Because it was made long after the production code had folded, it has all the graphic imagery that the 1970s, with its lack of overarching censorship, would allow. And so all the things that Hitchcock could not show in the past, all the things he could not do due to studios deciding star personas, are made possible.
