Hitchcock meets Kubrick
The first Alfred Hitchcock movie I ever saw was Rear Window and I’ve had a particular fondness for it ever since. Vertigo, on the other hand, I’ve never quite warmed to. The first Stanley Kubrick movie I ever saw was The Shining, which I also quite like, although when push comes to shove I prefer Full Metal Jacket. This mashup takes a few seconds to get going, but once James Stewart’s Scottie wanders in on the eyes Wide Shut orgy it’s off to the races. Killer ending.
