wronghouseFilm analysis, architecture, and set design converge in We Make Money Not Arts review of The Wrong House: The Architecture of Alfred Hitchcock. Location and architecture play a crucial role in nearly all of Hitchcock’s films, and some structures have become iconic: the bell tower in Vertigo, the apartment in Rear Window, the Bates mansion in Psycho. The review highlights just a few of the ways in which the films’ architecture informs and responds to the often twisted psychology of the characters.

It was always like Hitchcock to use a famous monument as the location for the climactic scenes. I'll be interested to see that book!
