How Alfred Hitchcock Blocks A Scene

Home / blog / How Alfred Hitchcock Blocks A Scene

The first Alfred Hitchcock film I ever saw in a theater was Vertigo. Although I enjoyed it, I have to be honest, I didn’t get what the big deal was. Maybe it was because I was young and didn’t completely understand what I was seeing. But, over time, Vertigo has come to be one of my favorite films. So, the big question becomes, were there things going on that I wasn’t even aware of. Things that made the film compelling even though I didn’t completely understand. In another video by The Nerdwriter, we look at Hitchcock’s use of blocking in Vertigo and how the position and actions of the actors inform not only what is going in the scene, but also what is going on in the minds of both characters and foreshadowing for the premise of the entire story.
