The Heineken Kidnapping

'Heineken? F**k that s**t! Pabst! Blue! Ribbon!'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Beer brewing can be a risky business. Consider Alfred Heineken: In 1983, the CEO of the Dutch corporation that bears his name was kidnapped and held for a sizable ransom, all of which is dramatized in the near-epic film The Heineken Kidnapping. It's more engrossing than its generic title lets on.

Hitchcock

It’s less suspense and more family plot in this muddled biopic of the master of suspense.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Alfred Hitchcock was more than the master of suspense. The director of such landmark motion pictures as Rear Window and Vertigo was instrumental in devising the language of modern film. As such, it seems a cruel irony that a movie about him would be made by decidedly lesser filmmakers.

Psycho II / Psycho III / Bates Motel

We all still go a little made sometimes for Norman.


Horror

Rod Lott
Let's all acknowledge something right away: No matter who was involved creatively, no follow-up ever was going to match the greatness of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. When a film proves as revolutionary as that 1960 shocker was, the bar is set impossibly high.
