This week's discussion is on the 1972 thriller Frenzy directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The film, about a serial killer at large in London and an unlikable jerk framed for the murders, is daring, clever and sometimes very hard to watch. Trigger warning for those who are sensitive about violence against female victims. Then we wrap […]

The documentary Hitchcock/Truffaut is coming to HBO in August. The film takes a new look at the interviews François Truffaut conducted with legendary director Alfred Hitchcock and the book Truffaut published from that material. Both by utilizing Truffaut's audio recordings from those sessions and interviews from modern directors, it illustrates the way the view of Hitchcock […]

If you've ever taken a film studies class, you've likely encountered Hitchcock/Truffaut, the interview book in which French New Wave director and critic François Truffaut interviewed suspense master Alfred Hitchcock about his entire body of work. It's an invaluable tome revealing the tricks and grammar pioneered by Hitchcock. I still have my copy from a […]

Previous articles in this series can be found at BleedingCool.com and MovieIndustry.com) At the risk of dwelling on this topic a bit too long, I'm devoting one more article to the […]
