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."

    Hopkins and Mirren are acting pros in stellar form. There's no way you want to miss the pleasure of their company in a movie that offers a sparkling and unexpectedly poignant look at how to sustain a career and a marriage. show more

    Hitchcock isn't ambitious or complicated. It's simple, does what it sets out to do, and gets out before anyone even thinks about checking the time. More movies should be made in its image. show more

    Though the film is titled Hitchcock and ostensibly centers on the legendary director, we get a better sense of the women around him than the enigmatic filmmaker. show more

    I enjoyed the movie. Not a great movie, but good. It showed a lot of insight into the relationship of Hitch and Alma. As with any movie, I\'m not sure how accurate it was historically, but it was a good story. And Helen Mirren still looks good in a bra and half-slip, straightening her stockings.
