5.0 out of 5 stars Hitchcock The Wrong Man, 8 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Wrong Man [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
In his foreword, Hitchcock says that this is not his usual genre,but a film based upon real events. It is, I believe, a masterpiece, concentrated and economical within the parameters he has set himself. The focus is on faces throughout. The narrative is carried by what faces reveal, whether the protagonist, his wife, his accusers, the policemen, the lawyers and other supporting characters. The theme of redemption, Catholic in its simplicity in this case, establishes the film as part of Hitchcock's canon. It is currently only available in a Region 1 release, which is unreasonable, to say the least. If you like his films, watch it, if you are able to, that is.
