13. Vertigo by Hitchcock
Edited on Tue Jul-29-03 02:47 PM by edzontar
I would say his "run" of classics from Vertigo to Marnie via North by Northwest, Psycho, and the Birds marks the greatest sequence of brilliant releases by ANY director.

You could make a matching case, of course, for Kubrick or Kurasawa or Bunuel or Fellini at various points.

But I stand by my choice!
