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.

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.

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!!!!!!!!!!

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.

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.
