It's rare for a biopic to deliver so little insight into its subject.

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.

Occasional flair and an A-list cast are simply not enough to carry this erratic origins story.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 15, 2013
This is Hitchcock for a tabloid audience: simplistic, judgemental, smug and pat. Rewatch the actual films instead.

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
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

All we mostly get to see is the sad, silent contemplation of an old, weary, prosthetically constructed man
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

A half-hearted, clunky stab at psychodrama.

February 8, 2013
"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.

A True Hollywood Story so cheeky and thin it makes My Week with Marilyn seem substantial.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 7, 2013
This sentimental, lightweight biopic is more concerned with the childish passive-aggressiveness of Hitchcock's marriage than the inner-workings of his artistic mind.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The movie hits the beats, but lacks depth.
February 8, 2013
What Gervasi and his scriptwriter John McLaughlin bring to the table are banality and predictability, quintessentially non-Hitchcockian qualities.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 6, 2013
Disappointingly flat. Hitchcock the man feels best left where he himself enjoyed being most: behind the camera.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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

November 22, 2012
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.

"Hitchcock" rings false from start to finish.
