Showing at the Belcourt Theatre, Alfred Hitchcock: Master of Suspense film series is a retrospective survey of Hitchcock’s mammoth post-silent era. Featuring twenty-four of the iconic director’s much-loved films, the series includes Rear Window, Strangers on a Train, To Catch a Thief, The Birds, Psycho, and more.
In addition to illustrating Hitchcock’s mastery at interlacing character and suspense, the series charts Hitchcock’s keen use of starlet muses including Ingrid Bergman, Tippi Hedren, Grace Kelly, and more.
“With the British Film Institute’s major restoration of Hitchcock’s silent films soon to tour the U.S. and the current biopic starring Anthony Hopkins, 2013 may well be considered the year of the Hitch,” says Toby Leonard, programming director at the Belcourt Theatre, who organized the series.
Master of Suspense runs through January 17. Tickets and information are available at www.belcourt.org.
