Gaslight (George Cukor, USA, 1944)

One of the few psychological thrillers that is genuinely psychological, depending on subtle clues - a gesture, an intonation - to thought and character.
— Dave Kerr, Chicago Reader

George Cukor's remake of the 1940 film Gaslight is the story of a beautiful, innocent woman (Ingrid Bergman) who marries a charming man (Charles Boyer) who tries to drive her insane. Boasting a lavish, detailed production that perfectly recreates the Victorian era, Gaslight is one of the greatest psychological thrillers ever made, thanks to Bergman's stellar, Oscar-winning performance. Based on the play by Patrick Hamilton.
