Alfred Hitchcock Filmography

All Films Ranked And Critiqued

Alfred Hitchcock: The master of suspense and so much more, this artist had a vision of humanity so vibrant that he could make our worst fears look beautiful. As if he saw a certain sophistication to the world's evils and all the desires that lie beneath, Hitchcock had a grasp on every nuance of every emotion, and he put them all on-screen in 35+ films that would go on to change cinema forever. It's true however that he reached a level that has yet to be matched, as with all the filmmakers that have come behind him none have been as innovative or influential either technically or psychologically, to the extent that Hollywood could only wish that we had a Hitchcock today. Not only was he the first to put explosive content on the screen but he was simply the best at it, with films about sex, chaos, and murder concealed within themes of romance, comedy, and horror, divinely integrated into every frame whether black and white or full of color. Below is a ranking of his classic films that spanned over five decades, in hopes that they'll continue to be admired for many more to come.

Indisputably one of the most acclaimed films from the Hitchcock catalogue, this horror slash thriller is actually more than what it’s given credit for. Perhaps the most viewed and the most famous of all of Hitchcock’s films, likely everybody remembers that story of whe...

For my money the greatest Hitchcock film before his move to Hollywood, this espionage thriller is criminally underrated and in most circles probably unknown. In fact even to film aficionados this film is more than likely to be confused with Hitchcock’s Saboteur, a simi...

            A psychological crime thriller set in an upscale living room, this film is nothing less than a work of art. A dinner party that prides itself on grace and grandeur in the company of elegance and dignity, serves beauty and charm as orderves with a surprise f...

A romantic thriller with psychological undertones, this film is a dubious tale that leaves the audience ‘suspicious’ of what is true and what is fantasy. The two main protagonists are a young woman of great wealth and a handsome playboy with nothing to offer but charis...

The first of two films Hitchcock made in the 1970’s, this film is a horror as much as it’s a thriller, as it combines the classic formula of an innocent man on the run with a repulsive serial killer terrorizing London. This film was a return to Hitchcock’s roots in mor...
