Hitchcock

Critics Consensus

Though it suffers from tonal inconsistency and a lack of truly insightful retrospection, Hitchcock is elevated by inspired performances from its two distinguished leads.

Movie Info

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.

Audience Reviews for Hitchcock

    Good, but the foot comes off the pedal halfway through and the film coasts to the finish.

    A heavily dramatised montage of the moments that went on to make cinematic history and one of the greatest films of our time - Psycho - Hitchcock is definitely more interesting than entertaining. Whilst it hang glides with fantastic performances (no suprise) from Mirren and Hopkins who seem to enjoy doing their very best at recreating Mr and Mrs Silver Screen for the short biopic. Scarlett Johansson also gives a very good performance as Janet Leigh. It resonates Aranofsky at times as Hitchcock seems sure to decline devastatingly into madness at times and the parallel between the director and infamous serial killer Ed Gein is terrifying at times and very surprising. One of the highlights of the film are the resemblances in casting, particularly in Hopkins and D'Arcy who plays the titular villain Norman Bates and the original actor who played him, Anthony Perkins. Definitely recommend this if you are a fan of Hitchcock, but more so if you are a fan of Psycho.

    Slight movie. Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of Hitchcock. My husband is, and he really enjoyed this, so good one for a fan. Nicely filmed with good performances by cast.

    It's a sly, fun film filled with witty banter and suspenseful developments, and it's a given that the performances of Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren would add life to the film. Scarlett Johansson, as always, is a bag full of surprises.
