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

" Notes: Since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I really had to watch this flick at some point. Eventually, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. Basically, it turned out to be one of his best and I absolutely loved the damned thing ('Vertigo' still remains my all-time favorite though). It was basically one of those typical Hitchcock thrillers during which an ordinary guy gets involved in some kind of conspiracy with some rather extraordinary circumstances. Nowadays, we live in an age where"

"3.7 Hitchcockin ehkä viihdyttävin klassikko on sekoitus poliittista trilleriä ja takaa-ajo/farssikomediaa, jossa on ohjaajalle tyypilliset romanttiset parisuhdekoukerot mukana. Trikkikuvaus on vanhentunut yllättävän arvokkaasti, eikä edes ikoninen lentokonekohtaus näyttänyt yhtään kornilta."

"When I think of a fun night at the movies, the canon of Alfred Hitchcock is often the first to come to mind but despite the abundance of brilliant films on offer, not every work by the Master of Suspense is necessarily a barrel of laughs. When Hitchcock made 'North by Northwest', he was coming off the back of two of his grimmest, most psychologically taxing films, 'The Wrong Man' and 'Vertigo', and he would follow it up with 'Psycho', a film whose lurid delights would only snap into focus in a l"

"Ei kolmannella kerrallakaan suosikki-Hitchcockeja, mutta meni heittämällä Bond-elokuvien topkolmoseen. Valkokankaalla varmaan pärähtäisi lujaa. Nyt katsoin ensimmäistä kertaa teräväpiirtoaikakaudella ja ulkoiset puitteet ainakin aiheuttivat darraiselle katsojalle esteettisiä miniorgasmeja: ah mitkä syvien värien täyttämät kuvakompositiot ja Maailman Komein Cary Grant.
