"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"
Dial \"M\" For Murder (1954) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Suspense)
21 Oct, 2007 | Movies To See Before You Die / Suspense

This is world famous Alfred Hitchcock’s one of the finest movies, based on a hit play. In fact many new English & Hindi films are based on this stylish thriller. When you finish watching this you have so many things in mind and you just want to salute the master filmmaker for the following points.

1. The whole film is 98% in just one room.
2. When it was released it was a 3D movie but the presently available DVD version is flat. Since it was a murder mystery, Hitchcock has used 3D in an amazing and beautiful way that u never feel that u r watching a deliberate 3D attempt. In fact Hitchcock never wanted to make it in 3D.
3. The brilliance of acting is such that the Film should be kept in the various courses at the Film Institutions.
4. The story revolves around only a few characters who are planning against each other and it has highly entertaining and unexpected twists and turns in the narration.
If you are a true mystery lover, you will surely want this movie in your personal movie collection. A perfect masterpiece from the master of suspense and thrillers.
Directed By Alfred Hitchcock
Starring Ray Milland, Grace Keely & Robert Cummings

Hi Bobby,
I would like to bring one movie to your notice -Double Indemnity (1944) directed by Billy wilder, one of the best film noir ever.
Just watch it and believe me you will add this movie to your favourite list as soon as you watch it, highly recommended from my side.
Plot - a woman together with an insurance salesman conspire to kill her husband to cheat insurance company and eventually their scheme starts to unravel.
Double Indemnity is nearly flawless and an excellent filmmaking and is a classic film that should not be missed, the sort of film you love to tell people about.

Also i am a true suspense\thriller\mystery movies lover, so if there is any unsung suspense thriller you know hindi\English\japanese no matter (though i preferred B&w, courteosy hitchcock), please share those with me.

Hi Abhishek,
As a fan of Billy wilder I have seen "Double Indemnity" (1944) long back and still remember its few sequences....However for including in the list I would have to see it again to find out that why I didnt add it then....So would get back soon after watching it again.

But as you would go through my list, you may find many reputed movies not there since I have a different viewpoint about the additions in it.
For instance, your will not find movies purely dependent upon technology or action in big numbers in the list.

However I am always open to recommendations and suggestions from any part of the world, so do send in more info, whenever you feel like after watching a great film.

And regarding the Suspense / Thriller movies do chek out these 2 categories in the "Movies To See Before Your Die" section of the site and Keep Visiting as I keep on adding more movies every week.
