Interesting mix and montage of Hitchcock, the Birds and the sixties arms race
23 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There is little need to introduce the glorious Alfred Hitchcock. He's as famous as the best of his films, and few directors would dare to question his standing. Sadly no longer with us but this homage pieces clips from his TV show introductions, films and interviews to give us a glorious and charming overview of the man.

The background is the sixties arm race and this film intersperses political & presidential scenes with the clips from Hitchcock and The Birds. It all seems messy but it's actually not and works well. What you get is a charming and at times curious mock documentary paralleling Hitchcock's the Birds with the political environment of the US v USSR arms race.

It's not too long and at 80mins is easy for anyone to digest. Admittedly it does tire at times but the creators of this film have made it entertaining. What stands out is the wonderful character and humour form Hitchcock and that is what you will remember at the end.

It's fun, interesting and as cerebral as one of Hitchcock's movies itself. Worth a viewing.
