Hitchcock Collection

4

Not Hitch's very best work, but still a fair slice of his US output. Top-billers are Psycho and Rear Window, classics that get better with every watch, while Saboteur and the 1955 version of The Man Who Knew Too Much are Hitchcock-lite. Rope and The Trouble With Harry fall somewhere in the middle: the former, shot on one set in uninterrupted 10-minute takes, is more masterclass technique than masterpiece film, while the latter is an overlooked black comedy that finds menace in sunlight and humour in death. Also included is Shadow Of A Doubt - Hitch's personal favourite - - a movie that located evil in the suburbs 54 years before Blue Velvet.
