The 39 Steps ★★★★★

It's beyond amazing how fresh this still feels. I can't name a more exciting film, at least not one whose energy never flags. As wonderful as North by Northwest is, the stakes feel lower somehow.

Anyway, as mentioned in the long review I've just posted, this movie is the reason I love to write about movies. And now that I almost know it by heart, I'm thrilled to find its capacity to delight isn't lessened for me at all.
