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.

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.

Very well done look at the making of PYSCHO.
Hopkins and Mirren are extraordinary in their respective roles, and it's fun to the see a stellar supporting cast re-create PYSCHO.
The make up on Hopkins is incredible. It's worth seeing for just his transformation.
My only complaint is that we didn't get to see enough re-creations. I could have sat throw another 20 minutes easily.
Overall, it's a fun ride.

Paced like one of Hitchcock's movies (as it should - most movies nowadays are too long and not crisply edited) the movie is worth seeing. It tackles a lot of the issues that come with the art/genius of moviemaking and the personalities involved and does it with insight and wit. go see it: one of the top three movies of the year!

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.
