Review of "Hitchcock's Romantic Irony" - by Richard Allen (2007)

Allen deftly moves from different critical approaches to-and historical perspectives on-Hitchcock, from Romanticism to queer theory, from nineteenth-century England to Expressionist Germany, in which Hitchcock received valuable and influential filmmaking lessons from directors such as the great F.W. Murnau.
