When it comes to making films, Alfred has made some of the best ever. Frenzy is regarded by many to be Hitchcock's last great film. For me however I feel his best days were long behind him by the time Frenzy was made, and I'm not alone here. This is a sloppy film in plenty of ways. To me it is somewhat hard to even believe that the same guy who made this film made classics like Rope and Rear Window. Frenzy is definitely worth watching as it does have some things to enjoy, but overall it falls far short of Hitch's best works. As far as film-making goes, by this time Alfred was only a shadow of his former self. Some have even said that this film was a total sell out, and I would agree that perhaps it is a sell out to some degree. For the most part, the love of the art is absent here. The film looks as though it were thrown together to meet a payday deadline...or perhaps it is just that Hitch was older and had lost the sharpness of his eye...that is what I would rather believe.
