You Won't Believe The Cardinality Of The Set Of Twists: I'm getting pretty good at figuring out the twist in Hitchcock movies (except I don't remember North by Northwest really having a twist). The only problem is that the movie is never as long as Tivo says it is, so I'm second-guessing myself right until I see "The End", whether the twist happened for real, or whether it will be reversed by another twist before the end of the movie. So even when I guess correctly, modern technology enforces Hitchcock's idea of suspense: that you know the Titanic will sink, but you don't know when. Hmm, maybe the twist gets reversed after the end of the movie. That would be... quite the twist!
