Despite formula, it works

A little light on behind-the-scenes Psycho trivia, this is yet another film that uses something we all think we know - psycho - to tell a disparate love story. The device is kind of worn these days, but it works here because of the caliber of the cast and the engaging tie-ins.

Nice look into the life of one of America's greatest filmmakers. And in particular the role his wife played for many many years behind the scenes in his successes. Great performances by both Helen Mirren and Anthony Hopkins.

Excellent film and Hopkins really pulled off his role as Hitckcock. Great behind the scenes craziness of Hollywood in the mid to late 50's. Story moved well and the supporting cast was excellent as well. A must see!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty Good

Very strong cast. Hopkins is unrecognizable and marvellous in the lead. Helen Mirren is also tremendous. Scarlett is passable as Janet Leigh, which, frankly, is pretty good for her. The movie gives some insight into what Hitchcock had to put on the line for this movie that redifined the genre.

Hitchcock Smashing Hit

Really liked this movie as the acting was superior and I liked the way they developed the partnership and marriage of he and his wife. The acting on the part of both central players was exceptional and the movie moved along and kept my interest. I also felt that Ms Johansen did a very good job with her role as well. This is an adult film and I highly recommend it.
