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

Hitchcock's most action-packed film!

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

"23.2. 2020 "North by Northwest" recycles Hitchcock's favorite theme: an innocent man is fatefully drawn into serious trouble against his own will. The dialogue is full of sarcastic remarks and jokes. The action scenes are some of the most iconic ones in the history of the American cinema, especially the end sequence set in Mount Rushmore. Cary Grant is very convincing as an awkward and confused man, but he also always manages to be clever, charming, and witty even in challenging situations. Eva"

"Re-watch - July 21st I needed something genuinely good to watch after Suicide Squad, and gravitated to North by Northwest mainly because it was screening later in the week & I knew I couldn't make it. It's still great of course, and I appreciated it even more this time around I think. It's one I'll gladly return to from time to time."
