HITCHCOCK is a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Alfred Hitchcock and his wife and partner Alma Reville. The film takes place during the making of Hitchcock's seminal movie Psycho.
Though it suffers from tonal inconsistency and a lack of truly insightful retrospection, Hitchcock is elevated by inspired performances from its two distinguished leads.
Scatty, intriguing but slightly undercooked ...
Filmed with lots of style and a macabre sense of humor the master himself would have enjoyed.
If Hitchcock himself was alive today, he'd undoubtedly turn his nose up.
The movie spends too much time off the set of Psycho, where the real story was, and focuses instead on incidental matters that feel like outtakes.
It's tough work giving good face to an iconic role, yet Johansson manages to show Leigh as a thoughtful professional aware of the interpersonal booby-traps set by her director for his leading ladies.
The cod-psychologising is a little clunky but [Helen] Mirren's Mrs Hitch is inspiringly ballsy - with a dollop of the vulnerability that made you sob in The Queen.
An overly literal idea of the brilliant director, but an entertaining visit to the set of a horror classic.
Hopkins has been fitted out prosthetically to resemble Hitchcock and he does a reasonably good job of impersonating him, but it's a foredoomed effort.
The portrayal of Hitchcock is the obvious centerpiece, and while Anthony Hopkin's temperament is not quite lugubrious or phlegmatic enough, we eventually see past it.
