:: Spellbound ::
Since a long time ago, I've been wanting to finish watching
The entire Alfred Hitchcock collection. During my JC days,
I was exposed to Hitchcock's movies, in particularly, during GP lessons
Conducted by Mr Buono, the head of theatre studies. I remember Buono's
Critique of 'Strangers on a Train'. He explained Hitchcock's various techniques
And how he would play with the theme of the film with many subtleties.
For my GP film assignment, I chose Vertigo, and it turned out to be a
Memorable experience, even after watching the film for 5 times.
Since then, I've watched Psycho, Rear Window, North by Northwest,
The Man Who Knew Too Much, I Confess, Dial M for Murder,
To Catch a Thief and The Trouble with Harry (Hilarious one!).
Oh, and The Birds, of course. This lazy afternoon I managed to watch
Spellbound, which turned out to be an entertaining Black and White film
About a female psychiatrist who falls in love with an amnesia patient
Accused of murder. There is a certain logic to Hitchcock's films that
Brings a satisfying resolution at the end of the film.
And of course, while they are not of my generation, I do think
That the late Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman have perfect
Stage charisma. Both of them. I guess maybe it is time to
Explore some of these older classics.
