...a tenuously engaging thriller that could've used a few more passes through the editing bay...

The iconic actors give memorable performances, the story is perfectly pitched and fiercely clever and under the astounding directorial eye of Alfred Hitchcock - American Cinematic God - it's nearly flawless.

It has all the classic elements of a Hitchcock film - well timed suspense, an overall mystery, a compelling cast and some brilliantly conceived scenes.

The picture is hugely pleased with itself, but it's too funny and expertly calibrated to mind in the least.

One of Hitchcock's most enjoyable and entertaining films is also one of his most quintessential works, dealing with thematic and visual ideas well ahead of their time, as for example the notion of fluid identity.

Hitchcock breezes through a tongue-in-cheek, nightmarish plot with a lightness of touch that's equalled by a charming performance from Grant.

North by Northwest, Alfred Hitchcock's very own adrenalin-fuelled action blockbuster.

Guardian

The romcom suspense caper is a cinematic recipe that Alfred Hitchcock took with him to his grave; certainly I can't imagine anyone now succeeding in blending thrills, spills, caresses and laughs the way he did in this sublime classic from 1959.

Hitchcock succeeded in wanting to give popcorn munchers a movie to smile at. And he was never this playful again.

Welcome and much needed proof that great action movies don't have to be meaningless and moronic.

Cary Grant's suave adman Roger O Thornhill finds himself in mortal peril as the innocent man-on-the-run, yet the tone throughout is buoyantly, almost insolently, comic.

The velvety villainy of James Mason, the crop duster chase and the thrilling finale scrambling around Mount Rushmore are just part of the pleasure in a classic that deserves to be seen on the big screen.

The great suspense director was at his most entertaining, creating a helter skelter action film where the hero is propelled from one breathless situation to the next.
