Hitchcock's Magic

Hitchcock's Magic

Decades after Alfred Hitchcock's death, his work continues to draw passionate responses and critical acclaim. With Hitchcock's Magic, Neil Badmington takes a new look at Hitchcock's body of work to try to figure out just what it is that makes them so lasting--and why their influence has been so pervasive. Featuring detailed analyses of a number of Hitchcock's most successful films, including Psycho, Rear Window, and The Birds, and drawing on the insights of poststructuralist theory, Hitchcock's Magic is an innovative contribution to the never-ending discussion of the master of suspense.
