M.Night Shyamalan & Alfred Hitchcock
« on: August 14, 2008, 07:37:36 PM »
I thought about this and discussed this several times with my family members (we all loves movies in my family) about M.Night's work and Hitchcock's work. Hitchcock had his own style. Totally unique. His mind was full of ideas. He loved movies so much even before sitting on the director chair he used to design title fonts for movies (correct me if I am wrong).

I compared his work of art, dialogues with M.Night movies. Everyone knows M.Night is inspired by Hitchcock's work of art, style.

Parts of SIGNS are totally HITCHCOCKIAN. What makes them different today. If Hitchcock would be alive what would be his reaction after watching M.Night films.

I'm not sure what his reaction would be. I know Hitch wasn't too fond of Brian De Palma's work, which in ways is more in the style of Hitch than Night.

However, I do think Hitch would prefer Night's take on suspense films compared to most other stuff out there today.

Brian De Palma? Honestly never heard of him. I should check it some of his work then.

I agree with you Malcome. M.Night should go for suspense. I would love to see M.Night directing that genre. There are lots of ideas and stories hidden. And I m sure mind can create.

You never heard of Brian De Palma?  You ever seen the movies Scarface (w Al Pacino), Mission Impossible 1, Dressed to Kill, The Black Dalia, Carrie, The Untouchables?

You've had to see at least one of these movies.  If you didn't, this is where you should start.  I wonder why Hitchcock didn't like De Palma's work?

SCARFACE: WHAT IS THAT?..............................................................

Of course seen Scarface, may be about 50 times. I thought "Oliver Stone" is attached to Scarface.

I think Oliver Stone did the screenplay or adapted the screenplay to be more specific, Brian De Palma directed it.

Brian De Palma's most Hitchcockian film is Obsession, which is very similar to Hitch's Vertigo.

Oh yea, he's gettin' old though. Late 60's I think. He directed The Black Dahlia 2 years ago and he's currently working on The Untouchables sequel.

Black Dalhia. I have seen that. Really dark movie. A little slow though.
Untouchables? Why they are remaking that one. That was a classic back then.

There was a nice about "The Magnificent Seven"

They aren't 'remaking' it, they are making a sequel.

I think I will have to watch that movie all over again. Anything about the cast?

I'm undecided, I don't know that mcuh about Hitchcock, haven't watched that many of his films, I think though he would like Night's style of directing.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.
