    I plan on getting to them ... but honestly I'm not in any particular rush to do so. I like Hitchcock's films, sure, but I'm not as enamored with them as most seem to be.

    Ok, I haven't really watched enough of either, but I'm gonna vote with my heart on this one...

    ...and vote for the Brit! When in doubt, vote for the British director, that's my motto!

    Spoiler:
    Nah, that's bullshit. This is just gonna be another round I'm staying the fuck away from!

    That's because you're not watching the ones I've been recommending to you. Didn't you promise me Rear Window once upon a time....

    Rebecca
    Strangers on a Train
    Shadow of a Doubt
    Lifeboat

    I'll stop there, but there's so many more. With the exception of Rear Window, I definitely prefer some of his lesser known ones. Don't get me wrong I loved Psycho, The Birds, Vertigo, but they don't even compare to the ones I mentioned above (in my opinion)

    I love Rear Window, it was brilliantly directed. I have to see a lot more of the classics. One day I will get through them. It's just no one I know besides one friend owns any and he's going to South Korea in a couple weeks. No time to go through them all lol. I showed him the list of nominations and he couldn't believe some of the names but was happy with a lot of the older directors. Judgding from how he talks, his two favourite directors are Woody Allen and Ingmar Bergman.

    I was actually going back and forth, then came to this great post by Heather. Went with Hitch. Rebecca and Lifeboat. Awesome.
