Get Lost In This Eye-Conic Supercut Of Hitchcock’s Close-Ups
The master of suspense meets the master of the supercut in Eyes of Hitchcock, a cinematic roundup that gathers the iconic close-ups Alfred Hitchcock used to control just how scared his audiences would be. Kogonada, the supercut master and “video essayist" who compiled Wes Anderson’s symetrical shots and Stanley Kubrick’s one point perspectives, pieces together this fresh compilation as the inaugural video in the Criterion Collection’s brand new Vimeo channel.
Since Hitchcock’s masterful close-ups rarely last more than a few seconds, Kogonada has captured them in a looping GIF-like form, giving each shot the time it needs to be truly appreciated (and picked apart by film enthusiasts). Below, we made a few actual GIFs of our favorite moments, both from Kogonada’s compilation and Hitchcock’s career. Even though we’ve watched Eyes of Hitchcock four or five times already, we still can’t help but get lost in these eye-conic frames.By Beckett Mufson

There are many type of ghosts. Know your type.
- Residual Haunts: the energy and habits of spirits remaining in an area. For example, hearing footsteps in hallways, hearing voices in a room or screaming. They are not aggressive or negative, but rather just energy of the spirits.These energies repeats, almost as if on a repeating film roll.
Interactive Intelligent Apparitions: when it seems that the spirit is aware of its surroundings. These spirits often move small objects, try to talk, touch you. Their main purpose is to try and communicate with you. They are bound to earth because perhaps an emotional bound, or significant event happened there. They can be playful, mischievous, and bothersome.
Poltergeists: Poltergeists are often a spirits that combine different actions over time. They interact by moving objects, throwing objects, screaming, banging objects, and opening or closing objects. These events grow over time with more and more intensity. They can be either somewhat aggressive or negative. Poltergeists also appear and disappear without reason. Some groups believe that poltergeists feed off of the emotions of the people that they surround.
- Demonic Apparitions: inhuman appearances and powers among humans. They are usually strong, forceful and almost super-human. They can attack, injure, appear and speak to people.. They have been thought of being anything from a human like figure to an animal-human combination. They are known to walk, fly, disappear, and whatever they wish.
Crisis Apparitions: Apparitions of the dying or recently dead (usually less than twelve hours, but as much as 24-48 hours). This category commonly involves one-time visits to someone with the apparition has emotional ties. Though the encounter usually seems to be a type of farewell, sometimes important and useful information is relayed. Though dying is the most common crisis, other life-threatening situations can also trigger apparitional visits.
- Apparitions of the Dead:These are apparitions of people who have generally been dead longer than 12-48 hours. There are two subsets: Those that make one or several visits to someone (they may not have known this person while alive). The very rare cases of apparitions that linger for months or years around a particular location or person.
