Hitchcock on the Power of Cinema

Alfred Hitchcock, one of the great masters of cinema, discusses the power of cinema. Specifically, he delves into the psychology of emotion (whether fear, tension, or the definition of “a good cry”), and why film provides an excellent escape from reality (reality being a state that none of us really enjoy experiencing). Fascinating stuff from one of the greatest film makers of all time.
