The Hitchcock Romance: Love and Irony in Hitchcock's Films Kindle Edition
Was Alfred Hitchcock a cynical trifler with his audience's emotions, as he liked to pretend? Or was he a profoundly humane artist? Most commentators leave Hitchcock's self-assessment unquestioned, but this book shows that his movies convey an affectionate, hopeful understanding of human nature and the redemptive possibilities of love. Lesley Brill discusses Hitchcock's work as a whole and examines in detail twenty-two films, from perennial favorites like North by Northwest to neglected masterpieces like Rich and Strange.
Brill argues his case persuasively in a knowledgeable analysis of Hitchcock's work.---George L. George, American Cinematographer
Deserves a place alongside the most provocative and incisive Hitchcock criticism of the decade.-- "Choice" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
