Alfred Hitchcock

Bathed in blood and often shaded in blonde, the work of our most revered director is vivid proof of how film can awe.

Injustice, identity, sex and death are frequent themes of this collection, storytelling experiments which became exemplars. They include Psycho, The Birds, Marnie and the film which topped Sight & Sound's 50 Greatest Films of All Time: Vertigo.
