Alfred Hitchcock Films - Ranked
976 8 82. Rope (1948)
A perfectly structured real time scenario, ahead of it's time. Features some of the best dialogue I've heard on any movie tackling issues on human moriarty and delving into humorous conversations.
Of course it wouldn't be complete without Hitchcock's trademark suspense, toppled with great performances including one of James Stewart's best monologues, and all this within only 80 minutes, but none of it feels forced.
One of most underrated films I've ever seen.
2509 7.5 7.84. The Birds (1963)
Hitchcock's closet to making a full on horror movie. Quite like a zombie survival movie, but with birds. One of Hitchcock's most suspenseful films and quite terrifying at times. Also features some excellent comedic dialogue.
A very underrated movie.
939 8 8.110. Strangers on a Train (1951)
The results of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Features a very "out there" plot, yet somehow doesn't come of as too ridiculous.
Also features one of my favourite Hitchcock climaxes.
345 7.6 7.513. The Wrong Man (1956)
Based on a true story, although the ending is a little anti climatic, the movie does a terrific jobs at putting you in the main character's sense of desperation.
663 7.9 816. Shadow of a Doubt (1943)
A fantastic early Hitchcock, showing signs of what was later to come in his career.
268 6.5 6.720. Torn Curtain (1966)
After the disappointment of Marine, Torn Curtain actually took me by surprise, especially considering I've heard many negative things about it.
From the bat, the films doesn't feel like Hitchcock, but rather James Bond, but the familiar Hitchcockisms do come through later on leading to some very memorable moments. Newman's acting tends to be stale at times, but Andrews shines throughout.
525 7.1 7.229. Marnie (1964)
From the synopsis of the plot, this movie sounds like it has potential, but as the movie progresses the plot becomes too ludacris and unbelievable, even by Hitchcock's standards.
785 7.5 7.530. The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
A disappointing Hitchcock-Stewart collaboration. Some great perfromances and interesting premise, but the movie's pacing is incredibly uneven.
407 7.2 7.234. The Trouble with Harry (1955)
Oh oh, what happened here? Hitchcock's attempt at directing a full on comedy doesn't turn out for the best. Although it is a very nice film to look at, it's brought down by dull performances, poorly written script, and for being about as funny as Uwe Boll is talented.
