North by Northwest

North by Northwest ★★★★★

This is my absolute favorite movie ever made. If I wrote out every reason why I think that right now, all that would come of it would be a heap of paragraphs blathering on about how perfect it is. I don't quite feel like going through that right at this time, so here is the short version:

An incredible story that has humor, suspense, mystery, drama, and romance that takes you on a whirlwind ride throughout the country. Remarkable performances and a sharp, tightly constructed script that shows you new things each time you watch the film. Perfect direction by the best there ever was.

I'm starting to get a little giddy and incoherent just writing this up here now and reminiscing about what I just saw again. This is why I love movies.
