TOP TEN BLU-RAYS OF 2009 PART THREE: NORTH BY NORTHWEST


Not my favourite Hitch film by a long way, but the marvellous restoration on this Blu-ray transfer compelled me to enjoy this movie like never before.
Yes, the crop-dusting plane and the chase across the stone Presidents on Mount Rushmore look spectacular, but damn near every second of this film showcases what Blu-ray should be all about.

Add to this some valuable featurettes for Hitchcock buffs, and you have one stunner of a release.Just sit back and feast your eyes on those eye-popping colours and the detail in both interior and exterior scenes.
Now, can we please have a Blu VERTIGO sometime soon?

  1. This one is one of my fav's in the Hitchcock line, and I did pick this up this year. I'm just waiting for the right time to view it with family. It's good to know the transfer is what you say it is. But, Vertigo in BD would also be a great one to have. Thanks, Steve.
