Well, I ended up really liking it this time around. It was a little on the nose at times. But, I liked what he did with this one. And I particularly enjoy single-location stories that work now. I think before I felt it to be a little claustrophobic. The psychological tie-ins were delightful as well.

Physicists Used Einstein’s Relativity To Successfully Predict A Supernova Explosion
Over 9 billion years ago, a distant star exploded. Thanks to Einstein, we’ve seen it multiple times on replay.
Well, I definitely saw this before. But, it was very interesting seeing it again now that I'm beginning to understand what seems to be Hitchcock's Freud phase in the 40's. This one, involving a 'psychoanalyst' as the protagonist chasing down an analysis to absolve her subject of a crime, to me this reveals Hitchcock's obsession with psychology and its importance to human drama. Films like Rebecca, The 39 Steps, and Shadow of a Doubt, all threadbare psychological thrillers, all lead up to this.
Haha, it's worth it to see this movie just for the most bizarre montage you've ever seen. We go from all wrapped up, to a bizarre twist that puts Peck convicted in jail. All in about 30 seconds and without one shot of Peck, totally low budg. It really feels like a rewrite after they shot the film.
