Wee Hunk's rating of the film North by Northwest

Sorry, Vertigo, this is the best Hitchcock film ever. It is ridiculous, yet sublime, menacing, but tender, lively, yet dark, purple, and clairvoyant. Don't worry Vertigo, because there's tons of fools who still like you the best. But you're just a mirage, aren't you? A cipher to be decoded. This is the real thing, and you just can't stand it.
