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.

Probably age-limited to those who saw the original Psycho in 1960, and there were plenty. With such an acclaimed film, it was interesting to learn how very difficult it was for its release!! An inside view of Alfred and Alma's troubled marriage well acted by all of the actors. I would rate this as a so-so movie.

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.

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.

We are Hitchcock fans, so we loved it. We actually went home after the movie and watched a couple of Hitch's films. Anthony Hopkins and Hellen Mirren are great. Helen Mirren for Best Supporting Actress? The movie has several great moments and lines.
