I literally just finished watching Dial H for Hitchcock. Too many documentaries for me of late. But Hitch is fascinating to me. Great stuff. The guy's work is incredible. So much more delicate than it gets credit for. And the smaller lesser known stuff creates a damn fine catalog on it's own.

Now I want to sit down and watch all his stuff again. Starting with Rear Window, maybe my favorite movie ever.

Actually, I think I was the only one who knew it was him all along until he decided to unveil his true identity.

And while you're here, I was just listening to Echoes and noticed for the first time that you can hear the faint sounds of children screaming in the background at some points.

i'm so far behind on hitchcock. the few of his i have seen i haven't really gotten hooked, but i get the sense that's just because i've watched the wrong ones.

the birds
rope
psycho

none of which wowed me. but i really want to see stuff like vertigo, north by northwest, rear window, etc. maybe i'll plan a hitchcock day of smoking and drinking over the next week. yes, i think i'll do that.

Well if it is ridonks, welcome back.

And believe it or not, I've never seen a single Hitchcock movie.

it was my favourite of the three, and there were parts i liked, but going into it already knowing the general story just left me feeling like i was watching one giant cliche. i wouldn't at all call it a bad movie and i remember loving that iconic score more than i expected i would (having heard it before hand), but it didn't live up to the hype.

maybe i should peep the van sant / vince vaughn remake. lol


oh, and i don't remember any screaming in 'echoes'. is it throughout the whole song? something rings a bell shortly before the bizarro four minute avant garde bullsh*t, but i might just be making that up.

Hitchcock is my favorite director. Psycho definitely isn't a wrong one. I like it the most out of all of his movies. My only problem is that they overexplained the movie at the end, which wasn't really needed. If you don't end up liking Rear Window, Vertigo, Frenzy, North by Northwest, The Man Who Knew Too Much, etc... then I don't know what to tell you. Maybe try one of his earlier movies like The 39 Steps, The Lady Vanishes or Blackmail.
