North by Northwest ★★★★

I was going to make it out to seeing North By Northwest on the big screen this month with my wife but we decided not to chance it with the blackouts in California and an impending baby on the way so we had a little at home date night instead. I kind of rediscovered an enjoyment of this film for the first time in a while and while I was looking at it through the lens of its influence on James Bond books and movies I realized that Cary Grant was actually the Bond Girl of this spy thriller. This might be one of the more joke filled of Hitchcock's movies, rivaled by The Trouble With Harry and Family Plot.
