That line certainly seems a potent one today, given our current political climate - really I'm just here to remind you all that Criterion is releasing this Hitchcock classic, a top fiver for sure, next week on blu-ray and you guys, this beauty's a beaut. It's a pristine 4K restoration for one, but the extras! There's new commentaries, new docs, new interviews, there's newsreel footage of Hitch and Ingrid Bergman chilling, and the one I'm most excited to check out: there's a radio-play adaptation of the story from 1948 starring Bergman and Joseph Cotten! I go back on forth between this or Brief Encounter being the single most romantic movie ever made, but it's certainly one of them two! (Any other votes?)
