The Critical List : Hitchcock
There’s another Critical List of mine up on East Sleep Live Film, this time looking at the work of Alfred Hitchcock.
This time out, it’s a look at the best work of a truly legendary director and one of cinema’s all time greats, Alfred Hitchcock. Born 1899 in London as the Victorian era drew to a close, Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock had an exceptional career which saw him make numerous films both in his native England as well as in America. His huge body of work actually spanned both the advent of sound as well as the advent of colour, such was the longevity of his career. His first directorial debut was as early as 1922 and his final directorial outing was 1976’s Family Plot. After half a century in the movie business, it’s no surprise that Hitch has amassed an impressive array of must-see movies. He paved the way for generations of directors who followed, pioneering unique editing and shooting techniques that are still utilised by filmmakers today.
You can see which of his various classics I plumped for by reading the full article here:
