Hitchcock(2012)

This movie is interesting to those of us who went to film school and know movie trivia, but Mr. & Mrs. Hitchcock are just not compelling characters to entertain the masses. Don't expect anyone to bite their nails over whether "Psycho" is going to get the green light at Paramount. The audience knows the ending before anyone sits down. The topic does enable the film's director to have some fun constructing several sequences (including the credits) in the 1950s style of a Hitchcock film. Anthony Hopkins has the voice but not the look of Hitchcock. I was constantly aware of his prosthetics. The film felt like a re-enactment for a cable TV show.
