The Genius of Hitchcock Trailer

Speaking of the BFI, we've got a must see trailer harkening back to the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock. The BFI is hosting an exhibition/retrospective looking back at the many tremendous films of Mr. Hitchcock, and to kick that off they've released a trailer. The full title is The Genius of Hitchcock: Celebrating Cinema's Master of Suspense and this quick, but outstanding, trailer features footage from many of his classics like Psycho, North by Northwest, Vertigo, The Birds, Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, The Lodger and plenty more. It's a rather fun and fitting tribute wrapped up in a nifty short video.

Here's the official trailer for BFI's The Genius of Hitchcock series, from YouTube (via TheMovieBox):

From BFI's Hitchcock page: "One of the world's greatest directors, Alfred Hitchcock excelled in a variety of genres during his early British career, before moving to Hollywood in 1939. It was here he became known as the 'Master of Suspense', producing some of the most analysed works in the history of cinema. With Vertigo in contention for the top spot in Sight & Sound's Greatest Films Poll, and the BFI's restoration of his surviving silent films, Hitchcock's remarkable body of work remains as relevant as ever." The BFI presents a major celebration of the most influential and iconic British film director of all time. They will be screening films at the BFI and around the UK at Picturehouse Cinemas.

BFI's website also features a few fascinating sub-sections, including the "39 Steps to Hitchcock", which is a massive puzzle-like webpage that takes viewers on a "step-by-step journey through the genius of Alfred Hitchcock." There is plenty more to immerse yourself in surrounding Hitchcock over there, so check it out.

  • I hope someday cloning becomes a reality so that we can bring Hitchcock back to make a film using today's modern technology. He was so ahead of his time back then that it would be fascinating to see what he could do today.
  • Hitchcock made so many great films its hard just to pick one.
