In 2012, the British Film Institute announced that Hitchcock’s 1941 psychological thriller, Vertigo was the greatest film ever made. Hitchcock’s personal favorite was his 1943 film, Shadow of a Doubt.

    I wasn’t a big fan of Hitchcock till the pandemic. I ended up watching a lot of his movies and really loved them. He was a brilliant man. Really liked the haiku too, lovely tribute to his legacy.

    Love Hitchcock! Took a film class dedicated to his films in college. Rear Window is one of my favorites. But Rope was his most cleverly unique, as it was shot in one continuous reel. When the reel was about to run out, they used props in the scene to fade out in a way that you would only know they did that when watching the movie.
