Quickie: North by Northwest (1959)

My boy Mr. Kaplan…I mean…Mr. Thornhill got c***ed to the highest degree. 

But, yeah. I don’t know what else to say. This is another mind-bending Hitchcock treasure that I have little to complain about. A splendid “we can’t trust the government” movie, indeed. Would it be mean though to consider North by Northwest the gratuitously extensive edition of Vertigo? That’s partially a compliment.

Also, I’m beginning to notice a pattern. I don’t think Hitchcock has had many pleasant encounters with the women in his life. It kind of shows in a decent handful of his films. 

Verdict: A-

Hitchcock Ranked 

“North by Northwest” is now available to stream on Vudu, YouTube, Amazon Prime, iTunes, and Google Play.
