Description

Regarded as ""The Master of Suspense"" and one of the most influential filmmakers of all time, Alfred Hitchcock is remembered for a long career, consisting of more than fifty films made in six decades. This volume discusses themes that make a film truly ""Hitchcockian""-the plot twist, voyeurism, and the innocent man accused-and analyzes some of Hitchcock's best-known work, including Psycho, North by Northwest, Vertigo, Rear Window , and more.

This inaugural volume in the Critical Insights Film series contains insightful essays analyzing the reasons for this film classic's acclaim, as well as its influences on the film industry as we know it today. Essays are 2,500 to 5,000 words in length and offer analyses of Alfred Hitchcock based on cultural and historical contexts, close viewings from particular critical standpoints (from traditional to postmodern), comparisons in the light of other films, and critical receptions over time. All essays are written by renowned film scholars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, providing in-depth, academic coverage of all key issues and interpretations. Finally, the volume's appendixes offer a section of useful reference resources:
