My first introduction to Hitchcock was through “North by Northwest”, but I think it was not a good introduction. Too old even though many cinematography milestones there. I even don’t plan to write anything about that movie.

Dial M of Murder, the second movie borrowed from a friend, really rectifies my perception of Hitchcock. The movie is simply sublime.

The plot is heavenly amazing with a very thorough and clever details.
The central character (Tony Wendice) is a very interesting character with his quick and detail thinking.

The movie really plays with your mind. You will feel your stomach when realising that Tony’s watch is stopped when he supposed to make a very important call.

The story is about a husband carries out a plot to murder his wife. The plan is very very detail and seems to be foolproof. Even when things go wrong, the husband can improvise a brilliant routing.

Can he really kill his wife?

One last note, Hitchcock’s trademark is his cameo.
Try to find his cameo in this movie!
