I look forward to watching this doc. Peter Weir has made some fantastic films, it's unfortunate his productivity hasn't persisted through the last 20 years. I watched Year of Living Dangerously this morning and it's great. Probably the best of the war zone journalist films of that time (Salvador, Under Fire, etc.)
I agree with you, personally I don't even think Vertigo is Hitchcock's best film. I prefer Rear Window, North by Northwest, and maybe three or four others before Vertigo. However, it does often make it near the top of critics' all-time lists, sometimes overtaking Citizen Kane.
Hoyte is the absolute man. Great advice, too.
This sounds amazing. Orson Welles is a treasure.
Awesome, now I definitely don't need to get the new Canon haha. Great concept. It was fun trying to spot all the homages but I don't think I even got half. The Matrix, There Will Be Blood (opening scene maybe?) Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Searchers, Man with No Name Trilogy, North by Northwest, Predator, and maybe La La Land in a shout out to himself?
They have a making of video too, gotta watch that next.
