After the police see the body in the back of the potato truck, they follow it and hit their siren. The truck driver then hits his brakes and the body falls out of the potato truck. This should not happen. The law of inertia means that any unsecured item in the truck will continue to move forward if the truck comes to an abrupt halt (which is the entire reason why we need seat belts in cars - to keep us from flying through the windshield during an accident). The body in the truck *should* have kept moving forward in the bed until it hit the partition separating the bed from the passenger cabin (or more sacks of potatoes). See more »
I really enjoyed Frenzy. I think that Alfred Hitchcock, although he may not have been on top of his game was still sticking to his style. I particularly enjoyed all of the suspense, actors, and screenplay. It got me more and more curious until the end. I think that Hitchcock also stuck very well to his medium in this movie. He also picked the best spots in London to film it. Although I did not necessarily appreciate the rape and murder scene he showed because it was disgusting, I really enjoyed the action. Hitchcock also did a very good job of the camera angles in this movie. For the most part it is just a regular Alfred Hitchcock film except for the nudity,the rape scene, and some slight use of horror. Overall, I think it was just the time that Hitchcock had reached the end of his career and did his best to please his audience. With his age and his state of health, I think that he did an outstanding job of his second to last film.
