Wow! What an intense action-packed thrill ride this film turned out to be. It is a really fun adventure that takes you cross-country and finding different ways to survive. I just love cat-and-mouse aka films involving fugitives and hostages because they are really suspensful and they are always packed with entertainment. I loved pretty much everything about North By Northwest. It is an absolute ma... read more

"“North by Northwest has a great example of what Alfred Hitchcock called ‘refrigerator logic’ – something that strikes you when you get up to go to the refrigerator at two o’clock in the morning and you suddenly realize that something you’ve seen in a movie made no sense at all, only you didn’t know it at the time. In North by Northwest, it’s the crop duster sequence…. Now there was no reason why a hit man would choose to kill his subject in this manner, but it doesn’t matter."
