Five Greatest Hitchcock Films of All Time

Last Night my roommate, Daniel, and I, got into a loud fight about Hitchcock's greatest films. Three of the five we agreed upon but he feels like North by Northwest is Hitchcock's greatest. I'm not sure if anyone that reads this blog watches Hitchcock, but here is my top five. If you havent seen any of these films, you should do yourself a favor and rent them. Great flicks by a master storyteller with brilliant acting by both Cary Grant and James Stewart.

Number One: Suspicion

The best movie Hitchcock ever directed. The last scene with Cary Grant holding a glass of milk as he walks up that long circular staircase still sends chills up my spine. Brilliant.

Number Two: Rear Window

Jimmy Stewart's finest performance. Unleashing the voyeur in us all, Hitchcock shows us that nothing we do is really private.

Number Three: Rope

The first movie I ever watched with hints of gay love. Though the villains are the gay guys, brilliantly acted and shot beautifully in three continuous takes.

Number Four: The Man who knew too Much

Another Jimmy Stewart gem, playing a man who wants his son back no matter the cost. Love this movie.

Number Five: To Catch a Thief

Retired cat burgular Cary Grant, stops at nothing to prove his innocent with the beautiful Grace Kelly by his side. Very cool movie.

I was fifteen years old when North by Northwest came out which is also something I did at that time, so naturally it it my favourite, but I love the others in your list too. One Of my other favourite Hitchcock movies is "The Trouble With Harry", advertised back then as 'The Unexpected from Hitchcock", because it was a comedy (about a dead body of course). Nice blog Jason, lots to read. :evilgrin:
