The Birds (1963) IMDb

Creators

Alfred Hitchcock (director).

Commentary

Unusually functional but necessarily limited mix of inexplicability, ontologically flaky psychoanalytical sublimations and (Bundy’s) realism. The subverted romantic comedy beginnings add quite a bit. I’m ashamed to say the lack of a score is rather unfortunate, though only in view of the massive artifice in all other respects (except the ending).
