The master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was a true psychopath. I’ve recently seen a biopic about the man and there are many, many things disturbing and unsettling about him. Perhaps it was that “uniqueness” that gave Hitch the edge he needed over his competitors? I think so.
Suspicion pairs one of my favorite leading actors (Cary Grant) and director (Hitchcock) to produce a delightful film about a guy who’s really interested in the finer things in life, but doesn’t necessarily want to work for them. Grant, a hugely underrated comedic actor, entertains the audience from the beginning to end.
Oh, and the milk scene: you’ll know it when it happens. Very cool. There was actually controversy about this film when it originally aired and the ending was changed, to better suite the pious America of that era. Google it for further insight, AFTER you’ve seen it.
