Film Friday Weekly Roundup: The Alfred Hitchcock Edition
I’m going to let you in on a little secret my fellow film fans – I’m not actually here. That’s right… Pretty Clever Film Gal is currently deep in the wilds of Canada, desperately trying to juice up her iPad with solar charger, just so she can get a movie fix. But thanks to the wonders of the interwebs, Pretty Clever Film HQ clicks along in her absence. And even though I had like ONE BILLION things to do before I ran off into the wilderness (mostly putting movies on aforementioned iPad), I still scoured the webs for all the latest and greatest. This is my gift to you. Happy reading, happy viewing, and say a little prayer for this most un-outdoorsy cinephile.
