Sir Alfred Hitchcock: The Greatest Quote You’ll Ever Read About the Greatest Director of All Time

————————————————————

“Unquestionably the greatest filmmaker to emerge from these islands, Hitchcock did more than any director to shape modern cinema, which would be utterly different without him. His flair was for narrative, cruelly withholding crucial information (from his characters and from us) and engaging the emotions of the audience like no one else.”

Richard Avedon, The Daily Telegraph (2007)
