Documentary Review | Hitch: The Genius of Alfred Hitchcock
Hitch: The Genius of Alfred Hitchcock (PN 1995.96 .B55 H57 2004 pt.1) dives into the mind of the famous film director. Known for his films that would shape the entire film industry, this documentary delves into how he changed the industry and his ideas behind some of his most famous movies. It focuses on the risks taken and how it led to even more success in the second half of his career.
I thought this documentary had a good mixture of interviews, it helped keep the movie very interesting. It was cool to see how Alfred Hitchcock was willing to take big risks, risks that had yet to be seen in the film industry, and although he was heavily criticized by peers the reception from the consumers were wildly positive. The combination of clips from Hitchcock himself to even actors in his classic movies helped showcase his imagination and how his ideas changed the way of film production.
