Cracked Rear View

I can’t decide whether Rear Window or Vertigo is my favorite Alfred Hitchcock film. I always start by affirming Rear Window as the obvious winner, but then I quickly remind myself that Vertigo is really fantastic. It’s not just the plots or the acting that make these movies so wonderful, it’s the subtle messages and hints about people and society that Hitchcock hides in plain sight in each one that that make them great.

If you haven’t seen either one I highly recommend them. Yes, they are a tad dated, but I think they hold up extremely well.

What’s your favorite Hitchcock film? Leave a comment. We’d love to find out.

If you’re interested here is the scene we referenced for today’s strip. It’s near the end of the film, so if you plan to see it for the first time someday don’t watch this:
