Film scholar Murray Pomerance presents a series of meditations on six films directed by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock, a master of the cinema. Two of the films are extraordinarily famous and have been seen - and misunderstood - countless times: ""North by Northwest"" and ""Vertigo"". Two others, ""Marnie"" and ""Torn Curtain"", have been mostly disregarded by viewers and critics, or considered to be colossal mistakes, while two others, ""Spellbound"" and ""I Confess"" have received almost no critical attention at all. In this book, Murray Pomerance takes us deep into the structure of Hitchcock's vision and his screen architecture, revealing key elements and showing how Hitchcock was profoundly interested not only in social class, but also in humanity's philosophical predicament, as we traverse a world fraught with shifting appearances, multiple deceptions, vulnerability and peril. Pomerance also reveals the link between Hitchcock's work and a wide range of thinkers and artists in other fields.
