Alfred Hitchcock is one director whom the community of directors worship and abide by his techniques to achieve perfection and finesse in their works. The five-time Academy Award winner out of his magnificent collection of 52 films, Alfred Hitchcock is the creator of unimaginable on celluloid.
Although all the movies directed by him, be it Rebecca, Psycho, or Spellbound, are highly artistic and define perfection, following three are my favorite.
1. Vertigo (1958)
It’s dark, it’s dreamy, and it reveals Hitchcock’s own dark insights. It is a story about obsession and deception which can affect anyone psychologically.
2. Psycho (1960)

This movie is imitated a lot and its influence, when it was released, was huge. This horror drama shocks you in a very positive way and it is still considered a masterpiece.
3. Sabotage (1936)
It is an adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s novel The Secret Agent and one of Hitchcock’s darkest dramas. It relates to the story of a terrorist cell in London. The movie is worth watching and tells you a lot about Hitchcock’s psyche and his technique.
