Following his great success with "North by Northwest," director Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) makes a daring choice for his next project: an adaptation of Robert Bloch's novel "Psycho." When the studio refuses to back the picture, Hitchcock decides to pay for it himself in exchange for a percentage of the profits. His wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren), has serious reservations about the film but supports him nonetheless. Still, the production strains the couple's marriage.

Anthony Hopkins takes on an American film icon in Alfred Hitchcock, and makes it work pretty well, but Helen Mirren steals the show as Hitch's longsuffering wife. It's a small movie about a genius marketeer of suspense and horror, and puts a bit of a smile on the grotesque story of Psycho. The movie shows Hitchcock and others creatively managing censorship and social morality standards by "suggesting" violence and nudity while none is actually shown. Pretty good film for fans of Hitchcock and the history of cinema.June 17th, 2013 · Details1 Thank ·
