In sequence…

Posted on July 30, 2017


Got this via email, and thought I’d put it out here for a discussion, if people want to bite…

Hi BR, some old classics play on the big screen here, and tomorrow there is Vertigo (1958) by Alfred Hitchcock. Is it better to watch movies by certain directors in a timeline sequence with respect to release date ? (so as to have a better context/appreciation) If that is the case with Hitchcock, do let me know. I feel you should write a post on this point sometime?

I’ve never done this myself (though I’ve certainly done the completist thing and watched boxed-sets of films by the major directors).
