The Hitchcock Romance: Love and Irony in Hitchcocks Films by Lesley Brill

Was Alfred Hitchcock a cynical trifler with his audiences emotions, as he liked to pretend? Or was he a profoundly humane artist? Most commentators leave Hitchcocks self-assessment unquestioned, but this book shows that his movies convey an affectionate, hopeful understanding of human nature and the redemptive possibilities of love. Lesley Brill discusses Hitchcocks work as a whole and examines in detail twenty-two films, from perennial favorites like North by Northwest to neglected masterpieces like Rich and Strange.
