Is There A Better Voyeuristic Movie Than "Peeping Tom"

I see the director of Peeping Tom, Michael Powell, although he lived to 1990, didn't seem to make many films after 1960. He made "Age of Consent" in 1969 -- which sounds more provocative than it is, given that the "girl" in the plot having a "relationship" with James Mason (always good at playing a creep) was played by actress Helen Mirren, age 24 at the time -- though young enough looking to suggest a teenager?

I read how "Peeping Tom" killed his career, and I don't remember any movies after. Couldn't get into "Stairway to Heaven" (Matter of Life and Death)... I did see "Age of Consent" but didn't care for it, although I thought the scenery, few characters was enticing.

Off the top of my head... I think Black Christmas is better than Peeping Tom.

A film I quite enjoyed that combines the subject matter with coming of age. "Just Looking" is a little-known film from Jason Alexander. Set in 1955 about a young lad's fascination about sex.

As far as Hitchcock goes, I think Rear Window is more concerned with the subject than Psycho.
A film often called an indirect remake / ripoff of Rear Window, I remembered enjoying Disturbia a fair amount when it was first released.
