Marathon: Alfred Hitchcock

Can words even begin to convey the iconic filmmaker, a man so popular and distinct that his silhouette alone made him instantly recognized to so many people? Macabre, stoic, wry and playful come to mind. And while one could certainly write entire pages on the persona of Hitchcock alone, most remember him for his movies.

And, of course, that’s what I’ll be looking at in this marathon. The marathon began on the now defunct website The Reelists and I failed to keep up with the marathon after the site closed. Now I’ve decided I’m ready to jump back in and explore, as well as revisit, the works of cinema’s master of suspense.
