I've seen about half the list, and there are several others I would really like to watch but have not yet... I thought VERTIGO was boring the first time I watched it. Then, I saw it again. And again. And again. Now, I think it's perfect and endlessly watchable and it ranks very high on my list of favorites. It's not a crowd pleaser, but there really isn't much to compare it to. Though I love at least a few HITCHCOCK films, REAR WINDOW may be my favorite film of all films, but I'm also of the opinion VERTIGO is his best.
The BIRDS is his best-IMHO. PSYCHO second-then NORTH BY NORTHWEST-then REAR WINDOW.
VERIGO is good-but a little to confusing and psychological for its own good,methinks-I am an average Joe-but Im no dummy-Im a geek too-but VERTIGO-well-I like Carey Grant and Janet Leigh better than Jimmy Stewart,I reckon.
I think PSYCHO
might be HITCHCOCK
's most influential film. Certainly a great movie. Like I wrote, I think REAR WINDOW
might be my favorite (though "favorites" are often displaced on my lists
The movie that really blew me away when I saw it was The Game.
Great movie; implausible but a lot of fun!
