Summary:

'Hitchcock' is an enjoyable and interesting account into the making of Psycho and succeeds thanks to the superb performances from Hopkins and Mirren and the insightful and sometimes funny script. Unfortunately it feels a bit too safe and the director sometimes seemed unsure of what tone to stick with. Needless to say this is still worth a watch for any film buff.

Hitchcock

Director Sacha Gervasi adapts Stephen Rebello’s book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho to explore the relationship between the legendary British director (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren), who played a crucial behind-the-scenes role in the making of her husband’s terrifying 1960 classic Psycho.

Now when I first saw the trailer for this, I was happy in the knowledge that it wasn’t going to be an obvious screen portrait of the director, instead it was going to be a look into how he staked everything to make one of his most famous films, Psycho, and also gain an insight into the woman that’s stood behind him throughout his illustrious career.

Check out the video review below and let me know what you thought of the film in the comments section.
