Frankie’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’ve always wished for more artistic talent. Well, murder can be an art, too. The power to kill can be just as satisfying as the power to create.
(PG) Crime, Drama
My first ever Hitchcock ever and I was super blown away. For a film that is very dialogue-focused, filmed in one location, comprising of six shots, and 70+ years old it was awesome. First off, it was pretty hilarious. The comedy was both intentional and added to the suspense. The screenplay and camera work is a mastery of showing not telling. All the characters feel extremely fleshed out in the films short runtime. All the characters are extremely memorable and entertaining. There is so much tension throughout the second half of the movie that I got goosebumps. The three lead performances were all amazing. Can’t wait to check out some more Hitchcock and some more James Stewart.
Favorite Scene: James Stewart detective mode.
