Reviews

"Motivated by feminist curiosity (like Pandora), Sprengler cannot resist revealing hidden secrets; namely that Hitchcock's hold on our imagination has found its way past cinephiles into the work of contemporary art. Her exhaustive case studies include moving images, installations, video games, and soundscapes, and her discussion has resonances that go beyond these 'Hitchcockian artworks' to the film/art axis of influence more generally. This is a valuable reference text for anyone seeking sustained analysis of the rapprochement of art and film and the release of cinema's obsessions into the wider field of visual culture." - Catherine Fowler, Associate Professor, Film, Otago University, New Zealand

"Contemporary art has been quick to capitalize on the familiarity of Hitchcock's iconic films in a way that serves to define the new rapprochement between the art world and popular cinema. Sprengler's book is the first to explore the art gallery of Hitchcockians and provides a valuable catalogue of their achievements." - Richard Allen, author of Hitchcock's Romantic Irony
