Well Done

Very interesting film about the making of Hitchcock's "Psycho". Not a macabre tale, but more of an unusual romance story between Hitchcock and his wife Alma Revel . . . highlighting their unique "collaboration" for which she received little credit. A gifted script and film editor, Alma co-shaped and co-edited Hitchcock's films with upmost precision. It is their inter-dependence and their long relationship that manifests itself within the production of Psycho. I've been thinking about it all morning . . . great performances. Love Helen, Anthony, Toni Collette, and Jessica Biel as Vera Miles. As usual, Scarlet Johanson is OK . . . but none of us are really interested in OK. They needed someone with talent and a lean face, not perky Scarlet. I think Jamie Curtis would have been a more interesting, and dangerous, choice But everyone else makes up for her . . . and like Janet Leigh's performance, her presence in the film is also short. Phew!

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.

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.

Hitchcock Kills 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.
