You love giving me these Hitchcock matches Flickchart! I still stand by my opinion that The Birds is easily his most overrated movie. It lacks all of the subtle, suspenseful moments that a movie like Shadow of a Doubt has. Also, Joseph Cotten plays a perfect creepy uncle.

I have no doubts about this one.

Shadow of a Doubt is a better film.

Shadow edges out here.

Thing is... The Bird's final act is like the best zombie movie before zombie movies. And in color. And by a skilled craftsman of a filmmaker.
