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.

"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."

" 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"
