North by Northwest
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock (1959).
The most abstract of Hitchcock masterpieces is an intricately-plotted thriller about nothing really. Spies chase Cary Grant from the U.N. to deepest Kansas to Mount Rushmore apparently believing him to be someone important. The outrageously sardonic tone provided a model for every subsequent Bond film.
