Alfred Hitchcock

The more that I learn about Hitchcock, the more that I am amazed by his mastery of the cinematic medium. All of his films have an aesthetic beauty to them, even though they may take on monstrous subject matter. Right now, I am really intrigued by his camera movements. There are several films where so much is told with just a tracking of the camera. The characters don't even need to express emotions.

Hitchcock is definitely one of the most admirable directors, in my opinion.
I love the fact that he uses such strong symbolism. His films all have such a beautiful quality too. They ooze class and, for me, remain timeless.
