“That Alfred Hitchcock was one of the major artists of the 20th century no longer seems a matter of serious doubt. He has almost certainly generated more critical study and biographical examination than any other individual filmmaker, and he remains as popular with the general public as he does in academia…

“It’s with Hitchcock that many of us begin to sense the presence of the director, to understand that movies are more than a matter of attractive people reciting their lines in front of a camera. Along with Orson Welles, Hitchcock is the filmmaker most responsible for making viewers aware of form, for showing us that what we have here is something distinct from novels and plays, a medium with its own things to say and its own way of saying them.” – Dave Kehr, The New York Times
