    I'm doing research into just how much the voyeuristic themes that can be extremely prominent within Hitchcock films (particularly evident in 'Rear Window')
    and these are my key questions:

    (https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/surve...xiJC0RqC_2FSAV)

    1. The term "voyeurism" refers to a theory coined by Laura Mulvey in 1975, regarding how viewers watch films - she argues that women are objectified within the media, that women are the object of the gaze whilst the men are the subject - would the presence of this in a film put you off from watching it?

    2. Has voyeurism deterred you from watching a film before?

    3. Do you think it will in the future?

    4. Have you seen films made by, or heard of, Alfred Hitchcock?

    5. On a scale from 1-5, how voyeuristic do you find Hitchcock's films? (if you have seen any of them)

    6. Would you say that his themes of male obsession with the female appearance deters you from watching these films? (if you have seen them)

    THANK YOU
