Spellbound (1945)


Salvador Dalí: The Dream Sequence

Our story deals with psychoanalysis, the method by which modern science treats the emotional problems of the sane. The analyst seeks only to induce the patient to talk about his hidden problems, to open the locked doors of his mind. Once the complexes that have been disturbing the patient are uncovered and interpreted, the illness and confusion disappear … and the evils of unreason are driven from the human soul.

Spellbound dream sequence Spellbound is one of Hitchcock’s strangest and most atmospheric films, providing the director with plenty of opportunities to explore what he called “pure cinema”–i.e., the power of pure visual associations.
