Alfred Hitchcock: Dialogue versus Pure Cinema | Film Analysis

by Take Me To Your Cinema

Alfred Hitchcock believed in “Pure Cinema”: telling a story with only the elements unique to the form: cinematography, sound design, and editing. By breaking down two scenes from Rear Window (1954) and Strangers on a Train (1951), Take Me To Your Cinema shows how Hitchcock reconciled dialogue with his preferred approach: using images and sound to further his stories.
