Ptaki Reżyseria Alfred Hitchcock
What keeps it so unnervingly unpredictable is that the explanation we crave for why birds have started to attack humanity is never forthcoming. What we get instead, as one possible parallel to Psycho, is murderous violence as an arbitrary dramatic premise. A blond heroine’s sudden flight from a city becomes a trip to the wilds — a movement towards the irrational, inexplicable fury of divine retribution.

No doubt about it, the birdbrains are amassing on our telephone wires and jungle gyms, and we’re holding out as long as we can, putting up the good fight. That may sound overstated, but good horror movies convince us our paranoia is justified, and, for me, watching The Birds again put its essential conflicts—between the human and the primal, the forces of love and the agents of destruction—into newly frightening relief.

The Birds represents better than any other Hitchcock film the extreme polarities of his universe: vicious unpredictability and moral and emotional disorder on the one hand, and rigorous stylistic control and formal organization, on the other. These contrasts are often at play in the director’s work, but here they take on an almost compulsive quality, allowing Hitchcock full control over the orchestration of chaos and leaving his characters with no consolation but each other’s companionship.

  • Trevor Tillman's rating of the film Ptaki

    Unrelentingly macabre in the depths into which it sinks. So much so for 1963, that I imagine Hitchcock felt emboldened hot off of Psycho's success. Like his other major works, it's as encoded and unreal as a dream, lending itself to the notion that we're really seeing Ms. Daniels' idle fantasy. Appropriate that the spectacle is conjured by anxiety, both maternal and filial, around leaving the nest.

  • Jason's rating of the film Ptaki

    The berserk masterpiece to supplant them all. Psychosexual. Cosmic. (Precisely the two together.) If you watch THE BIRDS on LSD you will not fail to recognize the birds themselves as the gatekeepers at the precipice.

  • Jake Cole's rating of the film Ptaki

    Hitchcock distilled, with his predilection for upheaving lives extrapolated onto nature itself, the bird attacks all the more terrifying for their meaninglessness. Hitch's chaos cinema, down to the nihilistic screwball of Melanie hopelessly trying to warn the locals after the school attack. Perfectly crafted, intensely disturbing and (in the subtle quest for family) oddly moving, it's Hitch's purest film

  • tiagovitoria's rating of the film Ptaki

    The art of creating things without the digital era. Every time I see Hitchcock's movies I get a free cinema lesson. There is a smoldering violence and rage that assault us in every way. It does not scare us, however we feel impatient by what's happening in and - specially - out of field. A really powerful acting by Jessica Tandy who plays the jealous mother.

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Ptaki

    Generally effective but with its mechanical bones more exposed than usual, the film is little more than a concentric series of set-piece frenzies with often pointless or underexplored exposition padding out the narrative between avian attacks. Of course, there is much to enjoy along the way and the sense of location is well realised, but its all a very narrow trajectory.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Ptaki

    I'm not sure this one lives up to its rep, and not just because the effects have dated. The story gets laughs when it shouldn't and doesn't give the psychodrama enough of the Hitchcock atmosphere, while the decision to go without music is hell on some scenes and Rod Taylor is boring. But the finale is still flawless, and poor Veronica Cartwright has no idea Alien is coming—things will get so much worse. 4 stars.

  • Erik Villasenor's rating of the film Ptaki

    The first movie I ever saw by Hitchcock. The imagery of the birds chasing children through the streets is something that will stay embedded in my subconcious for as long as I live. The look of the film is suprisingly impressive and because the film starts off slow it adds to the suspense.

  • Zac Weber's rating of the film Ptaki

    Some of Hitchcock's favorite themes are on full display here, particularly the unpredictability and moral disorder of everyday life. This is a psychoanalytic smorgasbord.
