A classic

Since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I definitely had to watch this flick. Even though it is really highly rated, it is not one of those huge classics like 'North by Northwest', 'Vertigo', 'Psycho' or 'The Birds', at least not in my mind. Anyway, it is an awesome film noir/thriller which was a speciality of the great master. I mean, even though it is more than 60 years old (!), it is still so... read more

Two strangers meet on a train. What destines to become a small, unmemorable conversation, turns into a chilling, calculating plan about murders and private matters. With the theme of double-crossing in action, Strangers may very well be Alfred Hitchcock's most silently subtle and ambiguous film. The film's antagonist, Bruno S. Anthony, a shirker and a psychopath, meets, in what we assume as a chan... read more

Description: En route from Washington D.C., champion tennis player Guy Haines (Farley Granger) meets pushy playboy Bruno Anthony (Robert Walker). What begins as a chance encounter turns into a series of morbid confrontations, as Bruno manipulates his way into Guy's life. Bruno is eager to kill his father and knows Guy wants to marry a senator's daughter (Ruth Roman) but cannot get a divorce from his wife, Miriam (Laura Elliot). So Bruno suggests the men swap murders, which would leave no traceable clues or possible motives. Though Guy refuses, it will not be so easy to rid himself of the psychopathic Bruno. The film is tightly paced and dist ... (more)

My Top 10 Favourite Hitchcock Movies (10 movies items)

"This was the first Hitchcock movie I ever saw, at a time when I was very dismissive of black-and-white movies. But by the time I was halfway through, I was totally hooked! It's about an innocent man whom a stranger tries to convince that they should "swap" murders, thinking they both have someone they want dead. He refuses, but when his nagging ex-wife turns up dead, he becomes the prime suspect. The tennis match scene has to be one of Hitchcock's most iconic moments, and the big chase sequence "

Anyway, it is an awesome film noir/thriller which was a speciality of the great master. I mean, even though it is almost 70 years old, it is still so relevant and completely entertaining even nowadays. There is no chases, shootings or explosions but it is just very well directed and written. After watching so many ridiculous "
