12 Reseñas
The Birds (1963) was the film Alfred Hitchcock made after Psycho. Drawn from a Daphne du Maurier story as well as contemporary newspaper reports of bird attacks in California, The Birds featured Tippi Hedren in her first starring role. A film about anxiety, sexual power and the violence of nature, it is quintessential Hitchcock. Camille Paglia draws together the film's aesthetic, technical and mythical qualities, and analyses its depiction of gender and family relations.
