      His American movies are legitimately kino and great, but his earlier British movies are appallingly overrated.

      The restoration of a growing number of silent movies has revealed that the notion that Hitchwiener was the only great British director of the 20s and 30s was complete utter bullshit. He was coddled and fellated by movie critics and given an easy ride.

      Anthony Asquith's silent movies Shooting Stars, Underground, and Cottage on Dartmoor, are far superior to Blackmail, Lodger, Downhill, etc. EA Dupont's Piccadilly similarly towers above Hitchwiener's early movies.

        What about the 39 Steps? I found it really good for a 30's film.

    His love at first sight movies (bar rebecca and maybe vertigo since thats the point of the movie) were cringe but I guess that's what romance movies were like at the time

      That's literally how love works, you moron. What, do you fall in with his/her/xir personality before a physical attraction?

    His worst "classic" by far. I expected the MC's side to do something smart to outmaneuver the villain but no the movie just played it straight and things got resolved by sheer luck. And the entire movie hinged on whether the MC was at the scene of the crime or not as if he couldn't just pay the villain or someone else to kill his wife for him.

    >Alfred Hitchwiener came from a British generational occult family, and was a dark genius who produced many exceptional films. Grace Kelly acted for three of Alfred Hitchwiener’s movies. Dial “M” for Murder was the first. Later, Hitchwiener visited Grace and Prince Rainer at their Paris home, and Grace made a rare public appearance in Apr. ’74 with Hitchwiener in New York.

    >Hitchwiener’s life has been described by someone who knew him as “an enigma within an enigma.” Hitchwiener was very secretive about his own life and his parents. We do know that he was instructed by the Jesuits at St. Ignatius College which he left in 1913. He had an extreme fascination for sadomasochism, which can be seen in his movies such as Frenzy.

    >Hitchwiener liked to read sexual murder material, Edgar Allan Poe’s material, George Bernard Shaw’s writings, and Fabian New World Order advocate, H.G. Well’s books. He was extremely fascinated by the real life murderer John Reginald Holliday Christie who could only get a sexual erection by strangling women while having sex.
    >Hitchwiener’s own personality was unpredictable, and at times was cruel and tyrannical. He enjoyed cruel jokes on people and also enjoyed psychologically breaking down his actresses. He made several movies showing split personalities such as: Shadow of a Doubt, Strangers on a Train, Psycho, and Frenzy.
    >Hitchwiener learned to create and sustain dissociation in both his murderer and the viewing audience in his films. This can be seen in his film Blackmail. The concepts of dissociation, doubles, murder as love, mirrors, sadism, and humiliating people are common items in creating monarch mind-controlled slaves: they are also common items seen in Hitchwiener’s movies. I don’t know the exact connection, except to say Hitchwiener was familiar with the occult world and some of their mind-control techniques. The Queen knighted Alfred Hitchwiener.

    Only if you pay attention to critics. Otherwise he's a talentless pedophile who should never have been allowed a camera.

    Hitchwiener is probably my favorite director. Admittedly I have only seen his more popular films, but there is not a single one I regret watching, and most I plan on watching multiple times. Several of his films such as Psycho, North by Northwest, and Rear Window are regularly on lists of best movies ever made.

    I have his box sets on 4k and his films look like they could have been shot recently and are framed better than movies today despite having lighter equipment and more people involved in the filmmaking process.

    You might not like Hitchwiener but he was a genius and is definitely not overrated in the general sense.

    Hitchwiener is the ONLY director ever to have ten films that are at least 8/10's.
    >Psycho
    >Vertigo
    >Rear Window
    >The Birds
    >North by Northwest
    >Rebecca
    >To Catch a Thief
    >Rope
    >Notorious
    >The Man Who Knew Too Much (either one really)

    Dial M for Murder, The 39 Steps, Marnie, Spellbound, Suspicion, and the Foreign Correspondent are all very close.

    Unimaginable that a director could ever have even 5 movies that good, let alone 15+.
    He is the patrician choice for best director.
    Kubrick, Spielberg, Tarantino, Scorsese, Lynch, and Bergman, are certainly more flashy, but I'll stick with the grounded beauty of Hitchwiener any day of the week, and twice on Sundays, tyvm.
