"Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock", Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire/KBE was an English film director and producer. Often nicknamed "The Master of Suspense", he pioneered many techniques in the Thriller (genre)/suspense and psychological thriller genres. After a successful career in Cinema of the United Kingdom/British cinema in both silent films and early sound film/talkies, renowned as England's best director, Hitchcock moved to Cinema of the United States/Hollywood in 1939 and became a US citizen in 1955.
Over a career spanning more than half a century, Hitchcock fashioned for himself a distinctive and recognisable directorial style. He pioneered the use of a camera made to move in a way that mimics a person's gaze, forcing viewers to engage in a form of voyeurism. He framed shots to maximise anxiety, fear, or empathy, and used innovative film editing. His stories often feature fugitives on the run from the law alongside "icy blonde" female characters.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous directors!

We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like. I have prepared one of my own. I have placed some rather large samples of dynamite, gunpowder, and nitroglycerin. My time capsule is set to go off in the year 3000. It will show them what we are really like.Alfred Hitchcock
