“When I look into a mirror, the person who looks back at me has always seemed to be a stranger, who doesn’t look at all the way I feel..”
“I consider my films to be frightmares, not nightmares…I have never been interested in nightmares…fear isn’t so difficult to understand….after all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood met the big bad wolf…”
“What frightened us yesterday is the same thing that frightens us today…it’s just a different sort of wolf! It is what you don’t see that frightens you….what your mind fills in, the implicit being more terrifying than the explicit….”
So said Alfred Hitchcock….all-time master film-maker the likes of whom we probably will never see again as long as we live!
We will go into more detail about his work and his life soon…meantime, here are some shots from his work.
