    That is actually my favourite of the series.
    Brilliant!

    Speaking about the Hitch...

    A while back I bought a box-set of some of his most-beloved classics on blu-ray (Saboteur / Shadow of a Doubt / Rope / Rear Window / The Trouble with Harry / The Man Who Knew Too Much / Vertigo / North by Northwest / Psycho / The Birds / Marnie / Torn Curtain / Topaz / Frenzy / Family Plot)

    It's interesting that I've watched all except the last three, and except for a select few which I've watched twice now, I have no big desire to return to them. He has a style that is at times ground-breaking (Rope), and he sets up shots beautifully but most of the times while watching half of these films I was extremely bored after an hour or so. Master of Suspense? Must be a something that felt extremely suspenseful back in those days, as there was nothing else to watch on a saturday... Because if I look at the clock or I doze off during a watch, it's not due to the masterful suspense, is it?

    I like a few of his films, but I'll never be able to call the man a brilliant director like for instance Tarantino, De Palma who have done much more in the suspense department.

    And it's not that I don't like slow-moving or character-driven films. Because I do, a lot.
