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

“My favourite director, Alfred Hitchcock has directed many classics like Psycho, Rear Window and Vertigo, and I will say that this deserves to be up there among his best. I absolutely loved it! The best aspect of this movie is the always charming Cary Grant in a brooding and entertaining performance as Roger Thornhill, a man wanted for the murder of a diplomat. Solidly supporting him all the way are the lovely Eva Marie Saint as Eve Kendell and oily James Mason as the villainous Vandamme. They are further advantaged by some excellent camera-work and a wonderfully atmospheric music score. The script is focused and suspenseful, and Hitchcock's direction ensures the film rarely slips, even if some of the complicated plot does fly over people's heads. The climax though is simply the icing on th” 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."
