Dial M for Murder

Dial M for Murder ★★★★

The parts in Hitchcock films I enjoy the least is when they spend a half hour explaining or theorizing about a crime. It’s the opposite of suspense, and really slows down the pace of the film. You see, the killer had to have access to Amazon Prime, because the film wasn’t available on other streaming services. But how could the killer have possibly known that? I was pounding my head against the wall, until I realized that the Watch Now app would tell the killer where he could find the film. It’s the perfect crime, really. A film that isn’t available in the most extensive Hitchcock box set or the Criterion Collection. No one would expect the killer to log this film!
