OK For What It Is

Alfred Hitchcock: Master of Suspense (2013)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This is a rather generic but mildly entertaining documentary that pretty much goes from one film to the next in the order that they were released. Each film is spoken about and we're told little bits of trivia while clips from that film (usually the trailer) is shown.

There's certainly nothing ground-breaking about this documentary as it's what you would call a copy and paste job but at the same time if you're interesting in Hitchcock then it's mildly entertaining. I say that because most fans will probably already know the bits of trivia that the narrator talks about but it's still a somewhat fun way to go down the masters career. There are some silly comments made throughout including one about SECRET AGENT breaking new ground by making the bad guy as likable as the good guy. Umm....didn't Warner do this years earlier with their gangster pictures?
