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).

Hitchcock movies were before my time. Not being a big fan of older movies, the only work of his that I’ve seen are a couple of of the big named titled, like Psycho. What I am a big fan of, are biographies, and true story movies. I love to hear the story of how a movie was made, and to get a peek behind the scenes. With that, and the combination of some really talented actors, and film creators, I really enjoyed this movie. I found it interesting, and surprisingly funny at times. Not what I was expecting at all. I also really enjoyed the Blu-ray extra features. Wow! If you are a fan of film, you definitely want to take the time to view them.
