Critic Reviews of "The Birds"Hollywood ReporterMarch 28, 2017
Hitchcock prolongs his prelude to horror for more than half the film, playing with audience suspense with comedy and romance while he sets his stage. The horror when it comes is a hair-raiser ...Village VoiceJanuary 18, 2013
Drawing from the relatively invisible literary talents of Daphne DuMaurier and Evan Hunter, Alfred Hitchcock has fashioned a major work of cinematic art, and "cinematic" is the operative term here, not "literary" or "sociological."New YorkerOctober 09, 2012
Few films depict so eerily yet so meticulously the metaphysical and historical sense of a world out of joint.Village VoiceOctober 09, 2012
Hitch's much misappreciated follow-up to Psycho is arguably the greatest of all disaster films -- a triumph of special effects, as well as the fountainhead of what has become known as gross-out horror.TIME MagazineOctober 07, 2008
The movie flaps to a plotless end.VarietySeptember 21, 2007
Beneath all of this elaborate feather bedlam lies a Hitch cock-and-bull story that's essentially a fowl ball.Daily Telegraph (UK)September 29, 2015
The true genius of the film, based on a 1952 short story by Daphne du Maurier, is the way Hitchcock makes the malevolent birds seem like manifestations of his characters' mental unease.America MagazineJuly 29, 2015
The picture pursues these false clues with excessive long-windedness and occasional fatuity. It is a tribute to Hitchcock's mastery of his craft that, even so, he makes overpoweringly real the menace of the birds.Cinemaphile.orgMarch 21, 2015
In the thick of an impeccable narrative that pays deep attention to all those involved, the great filmmaker manages to reach far inside the psychological chasm and find a rich inspiration.Total FilmOctober 06, 2013
Though it lacks the psychological depth of Hitchcock's greatest works, it's characterised by a nightmarish simplicity.Radio TimesOctober 06, 2013
This Hitchcock classic somehow strayed from favour for a while, yet in the realm of popular mythology it is now rivalled only by Vertigo or Psycho.Not Coming to a Theater Near YouDecember 16, 2011
The Birds represents better than any other Hitchcock film the extreme polarities of his universe: vicious unpredictability and moral and emotional disorder on the one hand, and rigorous stylistic control and formal organization, on the other.
