What’s On NOW!?!: ALFRED HITCHCOCK’s “FRENZY” (1972)!!!

One Of My All-Time-Faves…

ALFRED HITCHCOCK‘s

FRENZY

…Remains As Potent Today As It Was When I First Saw It More Than 20-Years Ago.

In Short…

I. LOVE. THIS. FLICK.

Period.

πŸ˜€

Released In 1972…

FRENZY

…Was The First Film From ALFRED HITCHCOCK To Receive An “R” Rating.

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…When You See This Flick, You’ll Understand WHY They Saddled It So.

FRENZY

…Stars…

JON FINCH

&

BARRY FOSTER

&

ALEC McCOWEN

…And Was, Of Course, Directed By “The Master Of Suspense” Himself…

ALFRED HITCHCOCK

πŸ™‚

The Gist Of The Flick Is As Follows:

The “Necktie Murderer” Continues To Strike Fear Deep Into The Heart Of London…

…And A Man (FINCH) Is Desperately In Search Of The Real Killer (FOSTER), As The Police (McCOWEN) Are Already Convinced He (FINCH) Is The Murderer!

πŸ˜€

I Don’t Honestly Know How Many Times I’ve Seen…

FRENZY

…But It’s A Metric-Ass-Ton Of Times, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

While I Love Most Flicks From ALFRED HITCHCOCK

FRENZY

…Ranks Right At The Tip-Tip-Tippy-Top For All-Time Faves!

To ME…

FRENZY

…Has Been Too Often Overlooked And Is GREATLY UNDERRATED.

Period.

In Fact…

…I’d Take Watching It OVER The Bulk Of Other Such Wonderful HITCHCOCK Flicks.

I’ve Always Felt…

FRENZY

…Was Simply Too Cool, All The While Other Folks Totally Dismissed It.

It’s Truly A Forgotten Classic.

Everyone Remembers…

PSYCHO

&

VERTIGO

&

REAR WINDOW

&

THE BIRDS

(just to name a few)

…But You Rarely, If EVER, Hear Anyone Mention…

FRENZY

…And I Think That’s A Shame.

FRENZY

…Is A Wonderfully Made Motion Picture…

…And It Deserves MUCH MORE LOVE Than It Generally Garners.

I (totally) Love It.

You (should) Love It.

We All (except for you) Love It.

πŸ˜‰

If You’ve Not Seen This One, My Peeps…

…PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Give It A Go!

I Do Promise…

…If You Enjoy Supremely SUSPENSEFUL Flicks…

…With A Healthy Touch Of Dry Whit…

…A Wonderful Cast…

…And…

…Of Course…

…Classic Storytelling At Its Very VERY BEST…

…Then A Flick Like…

FRENZY

…May Be EXACTLY What The Ole Doctor Ordered!

As I Said Before…

…It Is A Truly UNDERRATED Flick…

…And It’s VERY DESERVING Of Your Sweet-Sweet-LOVIN’!!!

πŸ˜‰

Have A Damned Decent Day, My Peeps.

Work Hard…

…Play Harder!

πŸ˜€

What’s MY Favorite SHAKESPEARE ADAPTATION??? “MACBETH” (1971) Of Course!!!

"MACBETH" (1971) Stars JON FINCH, FRANCESCA ANNIS, And MARTIN SHAW. It Was Directed By ROMAN POLANSKI.

Without A Doubt…

ROMAN POLANSKI’s

…Film Adaptation…

…Of…

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’s

MACBETH

…Is My FAVE-FAVE Of ALL-TIME.

Period.

It’s SO Dark.

SO Moody.

SO Violent.

SO Tragic.

SO Compelling.

SO Captivating.

SO WELL Written.

SO WELL Acted.

SO WELL Directed.

The Darkest Vision Possible For An Audience In 1971…

…And It Continues To Hold-Up VERY WELL In Today’s World.

JON FINCH

…Is…

MACBETH

…And…

…One Of The BEST…

…In Terms Of Actors Whom NEVER Got The Credit…

…Nor The Screen-Time…

…They Truly DESERVED.

He Has That “EVERY-MAN” Quality.

He Seems Like Someone Who’s Just As I Am.

Quiet A Lot.

Passionate.

Moody.

Misunderstood.

Yet He Has Always Had An Air About Him That Screams Aloud…

“I Am NOT To Be Taken For Granted. I Am Exceptional In My Craft, And I DO Know What The Hell I’m Doing.”

He Commands Respect…

…Deserves Respect…

…Yet RARELY Ever Got Even A Lick Of Respect.

Period.

In Regard To…

ROMAN POLANSKI

…I’ll Just Say…

…I Do So SO Enjoy His Work…

…And Respect Him As A FILMMAKER.

The Rest Of His Life?

Eh.

I Ain’t Goin’ There.

I Shall Let That Sleepin’ Dog CONTINUE Its Slumber.

πŸ˜‰

If You Like Your Shakespeare To Be Dark AND Evil…

…Done Right…

…And Done Well…

…Then You MIGHT Really REALLY Enjoy…

ROMAN POLANSKI’s

…FILM Of…

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’s

“MACBETH”

!!!

That’s A BIG FO SHO, My Peeps.

FO SHO FO SHO, In Fact.
