Re: Last movie impressions

since when are you supposed to LIKE characters in a Hitchcock movie? They're all self-obsessed and vapid. That's the point.

aw, hell.

It is a favorite old movie of mine. It recalls elements of a New York that had disappeared by the time I was born, yet my mother can still tell me about. People sleeping out on their fire escapes? They really did that in the 50s.. there was NO air conditioning!

I love the sense of life and continuity between all the neighbors in that film.

Its an art movie- its not supposed to be about speed and interesting stuff going on to grab your attention. Its quiet, slow and subtle. Its why I love it.
