Less is More?

When the wonders of digital media meet a billion people with interests and passions, good things can happen.

Have you seen the Hitchockwiki yet? It’s a collaborative effort to build the world’s largest resource on all things Hitch.

While no substitute for watching the films, I was struck by the site’s 1000 Frames of Hitchcock project. Jean Luc-Goddard, the great disruptive film maker, once said that "Cinema is the truth 24 times a second". Being able to search, view and enjoy single frames from some of my favourite movies proves that some innovations are about getting new value from existing pleasures. I was struck by the beautiful colours in Vertigo.

Madeleine Carrol’s stockinged leg anyone?

  1. Ah – but does anyone in the wiki make that connection between Bunuel’s ‘El’ and Hitchcock’s ‘Vertigo’? 🙂
