Groundbreaking one-shot, one-shot

1. This is the eighth Hitchcock work I've seen. As always, based on an interesting story, the film's technical content is still very high.

2. Hitchcock is undoubtedly great, because of his ingenious suspense layout, clever storytelling methods, and skilled film techniques. However, I think his greatest contribution to the film industry is still the groundbreaking of the genre.

3. In "Psycho", he pioneered a story about a split personality; in "Dr. Edward", he pioneered a story about a childhood shadow that led to mental illness in adulthood; in "Butterfly Dream", he It is groundbreaking to cover the whole film with a long dead person; "Reaper of Souls" is groundbreaking almost to the end and the scene to the end, and on the premise that the truth of the murder is thrown at the beginning, the suspense can still be extended. . (Some of the wonderful things in "Reaper of Souls" were carried forward in "Telephone Murder")

4. Of course, these ideas may have been used before, but it was Hitchcock who really carried them forward. While we may not find it amazing to watch his films now, we should think that's because we've seen too many imitators. For example, "Fight Club", "Deadly ID", which are now regarded as classics, etc., in fact, the core of the story-the idea of ​​split personality, wasn't Hitchcock the first to use it in "Psycho"?

5. Going back to the movie Reaper of Souls, the story itself is quite interesting, but many of the dialogues of the characters at the banquet have little to do with the story. It may seem a little procrastinated. In fact, this story was made into one piece A short film might be better.

6. James Stewart is very familiar to us, as always. I want to talk about the actor who played Brandon, who performed extremely well. From the excitement and conceit at the beginning to the tension and sensitivity later, the actor showed an excellent level, making this character very three-dimensional.

7. How did everyone feel during the viewing process? Is it to hope that the crimes of the two will be exposed? Or do you hope they can get away with it? Ha ha. Interesting Hitchcock makes moviegoers become accomplices of criminals.

    Janet: Did he do me justice?

    Rupert Cadell: Do you deserve justice?

  • Brandon: The good Americans usually die young on the battlefield, don't they? Well, the Davids of this world merely occupy space, which is why he was the perfect victim for the perfect murder. Course he, uh, he was a Harvard undergraduate. That might make it justifiable homicide.
