Thoroughly enjoyed Hitchcock! It felt like a behind the scenes tour of Psycho. Anthony Hopkins didn't play Hitchcock - he WAS Hitchcock! Besides loving this movie, it left me with the desire to watch all of Hitch's movies again! This was a fitting tribute to a genius.

If you are a fan of Alfred Hitchcock movies and you like the era in which he made his successful films, you MUST go to see Hitchcock. It tells the story of Hitchcock and his wife Alma durng the filming of the movie Psycho. Thier relationship was both complex and beautiful. Oscar worthy performances from Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren in the leads and a smashing turn from Scarlett Johansson who plays actress Janet Leigh and the ill fated Marian Crane in the movie within the movie. You won't want to miss the intensity during the filming the famous shower stabbing scene. Hitchcock is bloody good!

Just checked out Hitchcock last night. I for one loved it but I am a big fan of the director the subject of the film, so I went in with excitement. As a stand alone film I thought the story could have been a little stronger but overall the performances were spot on and amazing. Anthony Hopkins & Helen Mirren hit the mark and became the couple that ruled suspense and macabre film kingdom as the time in hollywodd. And the supporting cast was amazing! I came away satisfied that I step into the voyeristic view of the great director and his wife in a pivotal time in his movie career. It was fun to see how Psycho came to be. I was inspired.

This cast was wonderful and the story was playful. I was drawn into the world of this film as easily as one of Hitchcock's own episodes on his tv series. Lots of fun notes throughout the script and Anthony Hopkins performance is spot on. Don't wait for this one if you are a fan.

It's no surprise that Anthony Hopkins does such a great job, as does Helen Mirren...but it is the script, direction and editing that really makes this so worth seeing!
