"Don't worry, I'm not going to shoot you, Mr. Haines. It might disturb Mother"
on March 15, 2016
This is my second favourite movie of all time. That being said, beating my first favourite movie of all time would take something close to an act of God, because "The Thing" will never, ever be beaten. Ever. But I digress...
This an amazing buy. I'd only ever seen it on my father's VHS copy a long time ago, and the difference is quite phenomenal when watching it on a 4K TV with a remastered Blu-ray copy. Kudos to Amazon for finally allowing me to find this film again after all this time. It's a rare and difficult find here in Australia. I'm not quite sure what more to add. I'd ramble on about the plot and how much of an underrated Hitchcock movie this is, but there are probably thousands of reviews on IMDb where you can read all about that. This is simply to review the product in HD as it is being sold here and you are considering for purchase. I will say, though, that if ever there was a man capable of putting to film extremely awkward and dysfunctional relationships between a mother and son, it was Alfred Hitchcock. It makes me cringe every time I watch it. As far as buying it goes, If you're a hitchcock fan, don't even hesitate. If you're not a Hitchcock fan, well, still don't even hesitate unless you are aggressively biased against black and white cinema. A worthy buy for any movie afficiando, in my humble opinion.
