    Alfred Hitchcock made a lot of movies. Seriously, it's impressive. Not quite as impressive as the works of John Ford, perhaps, but it is a hefty list nonetheless – and hardly a stinker among the bunch. How many directors can claim to have quite as many iconic films as he has? Psycho, Vertigo, North By Northwest

    , etc. etc. My personal favorite is


    . Based on the true story of Leopold and Loeb, it tells the story of two college students who attempt the perfect murder – however, their hubris becomes an issue as their professor, Jimmy Stewart, catches on that something is very wrong. It is known for supposedly being a single take, without cuts – when in reality there are a few, facilitated by the camera awkwardly passing behind someone's back to disguise the cut; there is also a single traditional cut, which is somewhat jarring.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
