Hitchcock Reviews

Page 1 of 10

Gervasi misses a fine opportunity, wasting the acting talent he has assembled with a disappointingly ordinary film about an extraordinary man making one of cinema's most exceptional movies.

Irish Times

Occasional flair and an A-list cast are simply not enough to carry this erratic origins story.

The List

This is Hitchcock for a tabloid audience: simplistic, judgemental, smug and pat. Rewatch the actual films instead.

January 15, 2013

Hitchcock once said "Drama is life with the dull parts left out", ironic then that this Hitchcock movie is a stuffy succession of extremely dull scenes.

One big marriage counseling session set within the walls of the making of Psycho

All we mostly get to see is the sad, silent contemplation of an old, weary, prosthetically constructed man

Fan The Fire

A half-hearted, clunky stab at psychodrama.

The Ooh Tray

"A nice, clean, nasty piece of work" is how Hopkins' stand-in describes the superior film within the film. Gervasi's movie is just nice and clean and that's not nearly Hitchcockian enough for a film that carries the name.

Time Out Chicago

A True Hollywood Story so cheeky and thin it makes My Week with Marilyn seem substantial.

What Culture

This sentimental, lightweight biopic is more concerned with the childish passive-aggressiveness of Hitchcock's marriage than the inner-workings of his artistic mind.

Film Comment Magazine

The movie hits the beats, but lacks depth.

This is London

What Gervasi and his scriptwriter John McLaughlin bring to the table are banality and predictability, quintessentially non-Hitchcockian qualities.

Little White Lies

Unlike Hitchcock's work, it fades from memory almost immediately.

Many will leave the theatre with a smile on their face but in my eyes, Hitchcock focuses on the wrong characters and tries too hard to please.

Less of the domestic squabbling could have made Hitchcock a movie worthy of its namesake.

Disappointingly flat. Hitchcock the man feels best left where he himself enjoyed being most: behind the camera.

... a slight, forgettable movie. Sometimes that's enough.

Trying to carve out a space between black comedy and straight evocation of a difficult but rewarding marriage, the movie never settles on a tone.

If you've ever seen Psycho, or even if you know anything at all about the film, Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock would like to congratulate you on your savvy.
