Hitchcock (movie review)

Oscar® winners Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren* are spellbinding in this provocative story about the making of one of cinema’s most iconic films. Plagued by both a reckless ego and nagging self-doubt, Hollywood legend Alfred Hitchcock (Hopkins) becomes obsessed with a grisly murder story that the studios won’t back. Determined, he risks his reputation, his home and even the love of his wife Alma (Mirren), as he sets out to make the film. Ultimately, Hitch wins Alma over, and the two collaborate to create an enduring masterpiece – Psycho. Also starring Scarlett Johansson, Toni Collette and Jessica Biel, Hitchcock is “a knockout from start to finish” (Rex Reed, New York Observer). 

*Hopkins: 1991, Actor, The Silence of the Lambs. Mirren: 2006, Actress, The Queen.


My husband and I watch this movie and we both loved it.  I was so happy to review this movie because I am a fan of Alfred Hitchcock and Psycho is one of my favourite movies. i admit I was a little worried that this movie wouldn't be any good but I am happy to say that it was fantastic. Anthony Hopkins did a fantastic job as Alfred Hitchcock. This is one I will be watching again in the future and I highly recommend this movie.

Hitchcock is now available in stores.

I give this 5 out of 5
