Strangers on a Train

  • Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

  • USA, 1951, English, 101mins, DCP

  • Cast: Farley Granger, Robert Walker, Ruth Roman

Patricia Highsmith’s first groundbreaking noir novel gained immortality when Alfred Hitchcock turned it into a wickedly compelling thriller. While riding on a train, tennis star Guy Haines is approached by Bruno, a smooth-talking stranger who knows of his personal troubles. Suddenly, Bruno proposes to 'swap' murders with Guy, with each person killing the target of the other's hatred to avoid suspicion. Heightening the thrill of this ingenious and amoral story with astounding visual language, Hitchcock crafts a brilliant examination of vastly opposite men who share more than they want to admit.
