The Birds

The Birds ★★★★½

Number 900!!!! And I picked a good one. So embarrassed I’m watching it so late, but hey! Better than never! I think the runtime is the reason I put this off, as I do for many other films, and funnily enough, it did NOT feel like 2 hours. Cannot believe how quick the time passed watching this. The only reason I can think of why time flew is Hitchcock’s master filmmaking heavily immersed me into the atmosphere of Bodega Bay, and applause to him for that. It’s not easy to suck me so far in that I forget about everything else. Brilliance brilliance brilliance. Cheers to Tippi Hedren too. Exceptional performance throughout the whole film, especially during those last few minutes.
