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.

It's a MUST GO and See movie for the holidays. Five-and-a-half thumbs up for both Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. Anthony Hopkins as the master of suspense - very convincing! You would really think he was Hitch himself, the way he moves and talk. Helen Mirren of course, well... it's Helen Mirren - I could watch her just to peel potatoes.
Scar Jo also shines in this movie. Very well acted - the way she portrays Ms. Janet Leigh in this moviementary was exactly like it was in the original movie. There are times during the movie that you would feel they were actually filming the original Psycho. Nicely "well done".
Makes you wanna see the original Psycho all over again.

I went expecting an ok time. Not what I got. No siree! It was riveting. It was a joy to watch Hopkins take on this tough role. Unless you stared at his piercing eyes you really didn't know it was him. The backstory of his relationship with his wife and her role in his moviemaking career was enlightening. Pure fun....get up off the couch and see it. I do not know why it is not showing on more screens......a shame really,

I loved every second of this movie. Stunning performances by Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. I learned so much about the fascinating Hitchcock. I would even see it again, just to see Anthony Hopkins' amazing portrayal of the legendary Hitchcock. Highly recommend.
