(Notes are due on Monday for a participation grade this week)
-When Judy is writing Scottie her letter she writes, "You were the victim, and I was the tool in Gavin Elster's plan." What do you think of this evaluation of the situation? Who is/are the victim(s) in this story?
-Talk to me about the objectification of Judy and Madeline. Who objectifies them and for what purpose? Is the objectification more distasteful for one over the other or are they equally troubling?
- Consider the dominant ideologies on display in this film about wealth and gender. What is Hitchcock saying through the film? Is he perpetuating the dominate ideologies or challenging them?
- Now be Sontag(ian) in your response to the film - just experience the film for what it is. What did you think about it as a piece of art?
