Pick a Hitchcock of opulence rather than corpulence,
just pleasingly plump, with a snug silhouette,
To embellish the board when the places are set.
For the ultimate test, more closely examine it.
The Hitchcock supreme has a wide streak of ham in it.

Rear Window: An Amazing Time-Lapse of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”

Rear Window: An Amazing Time-Lapse of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window

Rear Window is a fascinating three-minute time-lapse short film created by filmmaker Jeff Desom, which is based on Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie Rear Window (1954). Desom extracted all of the film footage as seen from Jimmy Stewart’s point of view in the movie and stitched it back together. He reconstructed the pieces in a way that created a single panoramic view of the entire Greenwich Village apartment building’s courtyard, while keeping the order of events true to the movie’s plot.

In Hitchcock’s Rear Window, professional photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries, played by Jimmy Stewart, had broken his leg while trying to take an action shot at an auto race. Confined to his Greenwich Village apartment, he spends his days and nights looking out of his apartment’s rear window into the courtyard observing the daily lives of his neighbors. He begins to suspect that a man who lives across the courtyard may have murdered his invalid wife. Jeff enlists the help of his high society girlfriend Lisa and his visiting nurse Stella to investigate.

And Just Who Did What to Whom? Surprise!!

And Just Who Did What to Whom? Surprise!!

Surprise is a 1 1/2-minute stylish short thriller directed by Ben Dodd, which was commissioned for a special showcase at the Tate Modern Museum in London. The film tell a very tragic story as it unfolds from the end to the beginning.  It’s a “Hitchcockian” dark film-noir, where a  vengeful romantic murder is not at all what it seems. The dramatically circuitous and shadowy film leaves you wondering about just who did what to whom…Surprise!!

The Gulls: A Gull in the Head is Truly Priceless!

The Gulls: A Gull in the Head is Truly Priceless!

What happened, Mitch?
Gull hit her.
A gull?

WTF on earth is this dang thing here anyway??!  Well, “The Gulls” is a 1-min. animated short film created by Kristof Luyckx.  This very strange, drolly witty animated short was inspired by a piece of dialogue from Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds.”  Yes indeedy, and this poor little lady here in this film isn’t wearing no fancy-fashion birdie hat.  Nope, she’s got herself a gull sticking right into her head, and it’s a truly priceless wonder to see!
