Hitchcock 101: Day Six, 1948 - 1954

Hitchcock 101: Day Five, 1944 - 1946

Three films of the mid-1940s found Hitchcock in an experimental mode. One takes place entirely in a small boat, another explores the idea of the psychedelic, and the third stretches out into the territory of film noir, while animating the post-war sense of global interconnectedness that presaged the Cold War.

No one likes being toyed with, but Hitchcock makes it clear that he is in control; he is directing us, influencing how we think and react to the situation at hand -- and we love him for it.
