The acting was terrific. The writing was terrific. And the zingers were hilarious. While a serious film, it has many zingers that will make you laugh. I think Alfred Hitchcock would have loved the movie, had he seen it, even though it is not always flattering to him. The ending, when Hitchcock is outside of his house talking to the camera, will break you up, and is truly something you could see Hitchcock doing.
All in all, a wonderful movie.

This cast was wonderful and the story was playful. I was drawn into the world of this film as easily as one of Hitchcock's own episodes on his tv series. Lots of fun notes throughout the script and Anthony Hopkins performance is spot on. Don't wait for this one if you are a fan.

Thoroughly enjoyed Hitchcock! It felt like a behind the scenes tour of Psycho. Anthony Hopkins didn't play Hitchcock - he WAS Hitchcock! Besides loving this movie, it left me with the desire to watch all of Hitch's movies again! This was a fitting tribute to a genius.

Just checked out Hitchcock last night. I for one loved it but I am a big fan of the director the subject of the film, so I went in with excitement. As a stand alone film I thought the story could have been a little stronger but overall the performances were spot on and amazing. Anthony Hopkins & Helen Mirren hit the mark and became the couple that ruled suspense and macabre film kingdom as the time in hollywodd. And the supporting cast was amazing! I came away satisfied that I step into the voyeristic view of the great director and his wife in a pivotal time in his movie career. It was fun to see how Psycho came to be. I was inspired.

It's no surprise that Anthony Hopkins does such a great job, as does Helen Mirren...but it is the script, direction and editing that really makes this so worth seeing!
