My Favorite Directors Blogathan: Alfred Hitchock- August 2013

                                  1. Vertigo

Vertigo is the ultimate masterpiece from most fans and critics  except Psycho, Northwest by North, and Notorious which was mentioned in this list.  The film is so complex, that it needs multiple viewings to appreciate the film than the first time you see it. If you haven't seen Vertigo, go see it! It worth all of your time if you want to master of suspense at it's best.

2. Notorious

I can see why Truffaut and Ebert think Notorious is a ultimate masterpiece, but to me it is one of Hitchcock's masterpieces that I've seen besides the number one of Hitchcock's masterpieces that have on this list. The camerawork is stunning in this film. The acting from Claude Rains, Ingrid Bergman, and Cary Grant are spot on. This movie is worthy of being called a masterpiece from critics and film buff alike.

3. The Birds
This movie is more than some special effects that involve getting attacked by birds. The Birds is about how man and nature have not adapted to each other, while both species are struggling to survive. One thing that horror makers today  should watch in this film is how you get the chance to known the characters before you frighten people. The Birds is one the best films I've seen that involve man vs. nature. 

4.Strangers on a Train
This movie has a special place in my heart because it was the first Hitchcock film I saw. The merry go round and the tennis court scene were great climaxes to the movie and this is a gear movie to start watching your first Hitchcock movie for your lifetime.

5. Dial M for Murder
Dial M for Murder is a great mystery film by itself and the characters in this film were really entertain. You get to wonder how the main character is going to get with away with murder or not. The film pretty good, but it was better than the previous two other films that I saw related to Hitchcock filmography.
