Mad Props

See what people who watch my blog are saying about it!

"Alfred Hitchcock has attracted a legion of writers and commentators since his death 1980.  Only a few of these writers contribute something new to the canon. Of those few, Joel Gunz is surely to be counted.  His analysis never reads like analysis--he is, as the best critics can be, a revealer who pulls together the pieces in a way that provokes one "aha!" moment after another. Hitchcock scholarship and popularity now rests partly in the hands of those who write about him. The master of suspense could not ask for a better writer to present his continued story to the next generation. I was about to write the next generation of Hitchcock fanbut a Joel Gunz reader cannot help but become another Hitchcock Geek."
—Dan Auiler, author of Vertigo: The Making of a Hitchcock Classic and Hitchcock’s Notebooks 

 “Joel Gunz stands apart from the seemingly endless stream of new books, blogs, and out-of-left-field scholarly approaches to Alfred Hitchcock with a refreshing perspective and insights that often found me saying, ‘Wow, I never knew that!’”
—Steven DeRosa, author of Writing with Hitchcock 

 "Your succinct, pithy, clever formulations are the converse of those wearisome academic articles that make just one or two good points in the space of ten or a dozen pages, or those 'popular' surveys of Hitchcock that trot out the same old stuff just slightly re-worded from countless predecessors!"
—Ken Mogg, author of The Alfred Hitchcock Story and editor of "The MacGuffin."
