There's gotta be some way to acknowledge the Alfred Hitchcock Presents shorts?
Good God, I really need to watch more of this guy's films.
FIVE STARS !
you never let me down at any movie .. that's quite enough :))
His long lost, and recently found, film The White Shadow is up for viewing the next 2 months here:
I watched The Birds when I was very young and thought it sucked; as a result I was put off from his work for a long time and have just recently started catching up on all the classic, wonderful films he's made that I've been missing out on. Combing through this back catalog is going to be a real treat.
Hitchcock was a master of the human psyche as much as he was a master of the art of cinema! That's why his films are classics!
Um, MUBI, you've got a misquote up above. It's from Truffaut's interviews with Hitchcock, and Hitchcock is talking about his own films. "Some movies are a slice of life. Mine are a slice of cake."
The greatest filmmaker who ever lived, and I doubt he will ever be surpassed. My love for classics began when I first saw "Psycho", which remains one of my favorite films.
When did I start loving classic movies? When I saw Rear Window as a child, snowed in on a ski holiday. Thank you, Hitch.
Dios me perdone por sólo haber visto como una tercera parte de sus películas, pero qué titán del cine que era Hitchcock.
We must soon add the newly discover footage of "The White Shadow", (1923), considered as the first film where Hitchcock has credits on: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/la-et-hitchcock-film-20110803,0,4619800.story
Inspiración, referencia universal, mi mago personal
I love that a man who remained an observer of life would make films about sexual repression. His horror doesn't really work anymore but films like Rope, Vertigo and Rear Window are timeless.
Having seen several films of his at a young age, I've now come to love all of Hitch's movies. A master in Britain & America.
people, "sabotage" (1936) is already here, albeit under the name "the woman alone". for some reason...
Love this dude.
There's two categories of good cinema. (1) Classic form, composition and execution (2) Boundary shattering innovation. No one has combined the two like Hitchcock.
nient'altro da aggiungere.
He knew his way with women. He knew exactly how they should be treated on screen. A great and best director
A true master of his art.
probably the best. maybe ever.
He knew what suspense means.
My all-time favourite Director E-V-E-R. Have seen everything from him, apart from MURDER and THE MOUNTAIN EAGLE (considered lost).
my favourite is 'family plot' because it is so underrated.
