Strangers on a Train - 26-38-Myriam lit by lighter -thefilmbook-

“Truffaut said that Hitchcock filmed lovemaking as if it was murder, and filmed murder as if it was lovemaking.”

I have posted my third commentary about Alfred Hitchcock‘s brilliant film, Strangers on a Train.

My first post discussed the opening sequence, comparing the shooting script to the film, and Truffaut’s vision of Hitchcock as auteur.

My second post discussed the Bruno character as a great bad guy, the director’s penchant for cinematic trains, and his seamless blend of locations and rear screens.

This third post covers the event that happens in every Hitchcock film: murder.
