Cinematic Time Capsule
1940 Marathon - Film #41
Listen, I know I look the fool,
but there’s something fishy going on around here.
Can you imagine having such an astounding track record that a film like ‘Foreign Correspondent’ with it’s 5 Oscar Nominations is simply considered one of your “decent” films?
Can you imagine creating a movie that’s packed with amazing set pieces like the Umbrella Packed Staircase, the Windmills of Intrigue, and the Plane of Terror, but yet, your film isn’t even ranked in the top 20 of your filmography?
Can you imagine creating visual effects and compositing shots that still look fantastic 80 years later and people are like, “Yeah, it’s really good, but nowhere near his best”
Can you imagine what it must have been like to have been Hitchcock?
It makes my brain hurt.
”I’ve thrown a monkey wrench into some international dirty business, whatever it is”
