Quotes of Quotes (III)

I did not have time to comment on the most recent “Sight and Sound” poll, but I loved this quote on Vertigo:

“Vertigo has always struck me as the Hitchcock film for those who don’t really like Hitchcock all that much (it’s long, hasn’t got much in the way of jokes and the plot doesn’t work, when he is known for his economy, wit and storytelling), or at the least wish very much that he had been French.”

My favourite Hitchcock film, by the way, is The Birds.
