    Double post.

    Fincher was supposed to be remaking strangers on a train recently.

    i went through a phase of trying to watch them all. his obvious psychosis/sexual hangups start to get a bit much, particularly by the time of the really brutal one set in london. Frenzy I think? that's really sleazy and not at all like a normal hitchcock film.

    but all the ones where he was prevented from showing too much cos of the moral code of the day are really excellent.
    psycho i saw quite young (like 10?) at a friends house and they told me it would shit me up and it really did.
    have you seen the test footage and stills for an unrealised project? http://the.hitchcock.zone/wiki/Kaleidoscope
    very weird.

    he's a bit like kubrick - total master but even more fucked up as a person and in terms of what he did to the actresses etc

    When I say crude Freudian ideas I mean all those ones like Spellbound and Marnie where it was quite a new thing and so they are introduced in a very simplistic and literal manner. Same goes for the way his fear of heights is dealt with in Vertigo.

    Funny... I watched through all the Hitchcock stuff at one point and I too thought that Frenzy is a kinda turning point. Not for the better.

    Mildly interesting somethings... I meant the plot twists etc
    I don't agree that it feels modern though, I think it's surprising how little social media features and it's a mistake (often made) to think that making it about winning a PR war is a recent idea.
