Hitchcock | ★★★★★★★★

Might be revealing my age a bit but this movie caused me to reminisce a bit about the "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" TV show that aired in the late 50s and early 60s - it even played the theme song as the closing credits scrolled on the screen. The movie is an adaptation of a book about the making of Hitchcock's "Psycho" (his most popular and highest grossing movie) and focuses on his collaborating relationship with his wife.

I thought the acting was good. Anthony Hopkins did a good job and Helen Mirren complimented him well as Hitchcock's wife. The movie tells the story of Psycho and how Hitchcock had to battle with Paramount Pictures and censors at the MPAA to get it made - in addition to the shower scene this was the first film to show a flushing toilet.

Interesting that I have never seen Psycho but had no trouble following the story - funny how that iconic shower scene sound effects were influenced by his wife. Anyhow, I liked the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★.

  1. I would have probably given it eight stars.

  2. You have never seen Psycho? I recently put this movie on Netflix. I had no desire to see it when it was at the show but have changed my mind. Glad you liked it.
