This is definitely one of my favourite old school films. I think Roger O. Thornhill is one of the most suave and elegant characters ever portrayed on film. This film sparked my interest in the old classics and garnered a lot of respect from me for Cary Grant. That man can act. Seeing his transformation from arrogant yuppie to sophisticated 'fugitive' is great. The aeroplane scene and the final sce... read more

I have always been a big Alfred Hitchcock fan and "North by Northwest" was in my view his most entertaining and important film. It certainly rates a high position in my "Top Ten" films list!! This is a fast moving witty thriller that never lets up in its 130 minutes running time. The film is in beautiful Technicolor and Cary Grant gives the performance of a lifetime as Roger O. Thornhill being mis... read more

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" Excellent "man on the run" thriller with a huge numbers of great set pieces and a great cast. It is one of the essential Hitchcock pictures. After perfecting this genre Hitchcock left this type of movies in search for new challenges. It is still the best of it's type nearly 60 years later."

"The spy thriller of the quality Notorious was supposed to be. This is nothing less than a brilliantly fun film. Basically an action film (relative to the amount of "action" typical in American films at the time) with Cary Grant, with singular charisma, playing a sort of "Cary Grant on steroids"/Bond-type stylish hero, a riveting plot told perfectly by the master himself (it was with this film Hitchcock was elevated from an excellent but overrated director to the exalted position among Welles and"
