WEEKLY HITCH is a film studies and writing project, in which I watch all (or most) of Alfred Hitchcock’s films, in chronological order, for about a year.
In addition to viewing and reviewing each film, I will also try to trace influences, history, impact, and try to learn what I can about filmmaking by following along in the footsteps of my favourite director.
Before you bother to tell me, I’m aware that people have done this before. But, I still want to better myself and my understanding, so you’ll just have to find someone else who cares about how original they’re being.
Weekly Hitch began on April 29, 2014 – 34 years after the day that Alfred Hitchcock died. The reason for this being that I wanted to choose an important day, and his birthday isn’t until August and I was impatient.
