HitchcOctober Final Re-Cap

Everybody breathe a sign of relief, HitchcOctober is over. I’m proud to say I watched and reviewed 30 Hitchcock movies in October, some new, some old, some from the 1001 list, some not, and I’ve collected on the posts I’ve written – including the ones that already existed before last month – in this handy-dandy list, that’s also been ranked from worst to best. I still have a few Hitchcock movies left un-reviewed, but where that number was 38, it’s now just 8 movies (plus a handful of shorts I can’t find at the moment), including two remaining 1001 List movies (Spellbound and Frenzy). Therefore, I may well pick this project up again next October, but at a much more relaxed pace of one film every three days, instead of the deeply regrettable one-a-day.

Also last month I expanded my HitchcOctober celebrations into a couple of other sites.

For Robert over at To The Escape Hatch I took part in his Favorite Scene Friday series (something I try to do every month) by discussing my favourite scene from The Birds.The_Birds_1963_720p_HDTV_x264_aac_en

And over at French Toast Sunday (who also celebrated HitchcOctober with me) I wrote about my 5 Favourite Things about Rear Window, my Top 7 Hitchcock Villains and my Top 5 Hitchcock Cameos, so be sure to check those out too.RW6

So that’s all I’ve got to say on the movies of Alfred Hitchcock for the moment. Be sure to check back in a year’s time, when hopefully I’ll have seen everything in his filmography.

  1. All of your HitchcOctober posts are so well done. Really, bravo to you for committing so much work to one filmmaker. I’m currently making my way through all of this films now as well, and I more or less agree on your rankings. The Wrong Man was a great recent surprise for me. I have no idea why that isn’t ranked among his best films. I was so taken with it. Again, fantastic work here!

    • Thanks Alex, I look forward to reading your Director Series post on Hitchcock once you’ve finished. Fortunately The Wrong Man is on the 1001 Movies List, but it should definitely be more discussed than it is.
