AIPT Movies Podcast episode 81: No EscApril: ‘North by Northwest’

No EsApril continues!

It’s April, so that means it’s time for the AIPT Movies podcast’s “No EscApril” series, where we celebrate the wonder of thrillers! Not quite horror, not quite action, that sweet spot in the middle where danger is afoot, and lives are still on the line! In this week’s episode, Alex, Tim, and Matt discuss Alfred Hitchock’s mistaken-identity mystery thriller, North by Northwest!

Possibly the most iconic gray suit in movie history! Classic filmmaking techniques and visual effects! A cornucopia of fantastic mid-century design and fashion, featuring the work of legendary artist Saul Bass! Cary Grant being surprisingly charming while running away from an airplane! Eva Marie Saint as an early archetype for the modern femme fatale! A fun, punchy script full of twists and suspense! A movie that not only created the template for the James Bond series, but also influenced countless other movies, such as Catch Me If You Can and Total Recall (we think)!

In addition, Alex shares his spoiler-free thoughts on Civil War and Law Abiding Citizen!

You can find Alex on Instagram and Twitter @ActionHarris. Matt is a terrific artist that you can find on Instagram @no_wheres_ville. Tim can’t be found on social media because he doesn’t exist.
