Best Movies of All Time + [Vertigo]

In Memoriam: Alfred Hitchcock

Today, we're celebrating the life of another astounding director. This time, we're remembering Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense, who would have turned 112 today were he still alive. Hitchcock's name is nearly synonymous with suspense and horror because he always found ways to push the envelope just a little bit further. A five-time Academy Award nominee for Best Director, he never took home the golden statuette, but no one can deny the lasting impression he and his films left on the Hollywood scene. Now, I'm not entirely well-versed in his filmography, but I think I've seen enough of his films to give you a list of what I think are his five best. Here they are, in descending order, and I've given you a clip from each of the films to get a taste as to the film's tone. Once again, let's remember the genius that was Alfred Hitchcock as we celebrate his birthday today.
