Film Discussion Brunch: Early Alfred Hitchcock
Before he made classics like "Vertigo" or "North By Northwest", Alfred Hitchcock was making amazing films for decades. In this Film Discussion Brunch, we'll be talking about the legendary director with a focus on his earlier films! The films we'll be sure to take a look at include: "The 39 Steps" (1935) "The Lady Vanishes" (1938) "Rebecca" (1940) "Shadow of a Doubt" (1943) "Spellbound" (1945) "Notorious" (the non-B.I.G. one, from 1946) "Rope" (1948) "Strangers on a Train" (1951) Most of these films are widely available via Criterion, Filmstruck (watch them while you still can!), and at your local library. By no means is this an extensive list of superb early movies from the Master of Suspense, so if you want to point out some great silent films of his or make a case for the, er, "The Paradine Case", you're most welcome to! There's plenty to talk about when it comes to the work of this remarkable director.

    What we're about

    This is a group for people who love cinema and love talking about it...

    Don't be intimidated about your level of trivia knowledge as a movie geek and don't be bashful about your favorite genre choices. We'll take an eclectic approach to the aesthetics of cinema.

    Meetups can either be held to see a movie and discuss it afterwards, discuss movies without screening one, or attending one and discussing it at a later date in a separate Meetup...
