Topic for this week is all about Alfred Hitchcock
He is regarded as one of history's most important directors. He influenced alot of present directors and actors, even maybe a genre! Steven Spielberg, Brian De Palma, John Carpenter and Quentin Tarantino named him as an influence. But, surprisingly, he never won a best director award.
When I was a kid, I remember our baby sitter always have this movie night where we watch Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents next to each other. She said this will make us be used to scary stuff so we won't be afraid. But I guess it really never went as planned. LOL
Here's my little way to pay tribute to a great legend! By posting my 5 faves from the memorable films he has made. (Well those that I remember seeing)
1. The Birds (1963)- This one is very very unforgettable! I remember being scared with birds as a kid because of this. lol...
2. To Catch a Thief (1955) - A thief proves his innocence by catching another thief. Not scary but indeed the mystery keeps you glued.
3. Insomnia (1955) from the "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" series. - A man with an insomnia and a recurring dream. But was it really a dream?
4. Beta Delta Gamma (1961) from the "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" series. - A frat house party practical joke gone bad.
5. You Can't Trust a Man (1961) from the "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" series. - An undivorced singer who wants to get rid of her excon husband, and made the wrong choice.
