hahahadas said: do you agree? but so much effort goes into dialogue.
Yes, but film is a visual medium. What he’s saying is that there should be enough information in the frame to move the story along. And for an actor to be great, he or she has to be able to express emotion and other information physically (like Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton, or… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdVDp8cCx1g ). The story can’t depend on dialogue. That’s what makes film, as a mode of storytelling, different from literature. If you put too much emphasis on the script then you aren’t really putting enough consideration into how the cinematic medium, specifically, can tell a story in a way that other mediums cannot.
But also, keep in mind that Hitchcock came up in the silent days and he was somewhat nostalgic for them. Which is why in many of his movies, there are long stretches without dialogue.
