The Birds: Why Do the Birds Attack?
by The Take by ScreenPrism
Alfred Hitchcock’s horror 1963 The Birds, never gives us an explanation as to why these birds attack. However, ScreenPrism notes that birds is a slang for women and one can interpret the film as a commentary on gender roles and women’s behavior. ScreenPrism analyzes how the “birds” are really an allegory for women in society.
