I Love His Movies

yes, certainly, REBECCA is one of his great masterpieces. not the usual suspense film, but rather one of romance and deadly atmospheres, a mystery that envelopes Joan Fontaine into her husband Laurence Olivier's world.

I love HITCHCOCK more and more as I discover his films. I am particularly fond of his early films which really have this charm and magnetism but later ones are also worth attention. I adore REBECCA and SUSPICION

THE UNDEAFTED MASTER OF SUSPENSE! even after many years, the legacy of Hitchcock lives on to this day, having influenced the suspense/mystery/spy thriller genres more than any other director ever has. his film formula has it all: action, suspense, romance (always!), mystery, excellent music like that of bernard Herrmann, and great production values. certainly, REAR WINDOW is one of his finest film examples, as well NORTH BY NORTHWEST, the best of the hitchcockian "man on the run" or "macguffin" stories!

On Dave Kehr and “Movies That Mattered”

When I was in the film program at Northwestern University in Chicago, my peers and I were required to read the works of Walter Benjamin, John Berger, Michel Foucault and even Freud, Jung and Marx. The idea was to apply their theories to the cinema to better understand how film worked, or how it related […]

Making the Leap: Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Talkies

To view The Private Life of Don Juan click here. Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. made his last movie in 1934. The Private Life of Don Juan was, quite accidentally, a fitting farewell to one of the first megastars of the movie industry. It wasn’t clear while filming it that it would be Fairbanks’ last movie but […]

The Greatest Early Douglas Sirk: Lured (1947)

To view Lured click here. Writer and director Douglas Sirk is mainly known today for his exquisite technicolor melodramas, such as Magnificent Obsession (1954), All That Heaven Allows (1955), Written on the Wind (1956) and Imitation of Life (1959), his last feature-length film. His work throughout the 1950s, and specifically these four films, are not […]
