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.

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.

Well Done

Enjoyed this movie. I have admired Hitchcock's work, and was entertained thoroughly to see his complicated personality and relationships, and how they influenced his creativity. The backstory of "Psycho" was enlightening.

Well done to the cast, screen writer, and director! Excellent movie. I loved the scene where Hitch gets the most out of Janet Leigh in the shower scene. Now I can understand his pictures a bit better, since it appears his wife, Alma, was very much involved with his career for soooo many years.

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!!!!!!!!!!
