I love how Hitchcock used beautiful actors - the girls looked perfect, just like they had came from a beauty salon, and the guys where the essence of manliness, always tall with suits and everything. I find it pretty funny.
Then I love how he creates suspense. You always follow a character that’s done something bad, a murder or a theft, and then some good person shows up and tries to help him. I love the idea of this - the viewer is attached to the EVIL guy and wishes the GOOD guy would get lost. It’s always:
“Hi! I’m a detective, may I help you somehow? You look as if you needed some help”
“N…n…nno thanks… I…I’m in quite a… hurry”
“Are you sure? You look frightened. Has something happened?”
“No, no, nothing” /an awkward smile/ "what makes you think that?"
And on and on it goes until the girl runs off with a bad excuse and like four man look at her with those suspicious faces. How can you not like it? Nobody ever makes these kinda films now.
Then I like his soundtracks, it is some really dramatic music, makes you laugh, haha, everything in his films was theatratical, and it fits the atmosphere so well.
And of course the appearances. Tarantino also appears in his movies, but not like that. Remember in Stage Fright, when the girl is running, she’s bewildered, frightened, she had commited murder, right? So she runs on Hitch and he looks at her as if he knew everything. And he DID, he’s the DIRECTOR for god’s sake, he appears in his movies not like a character, but as a director, I love that.
