Hitcock

Hitchock Synopsis

A love story between influential filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock and wife Alma Reville during the filming of Psycho in 1959.
My Musings
A really entertaining , witty and interesting film about Hitchcock , their relationship with his wife and the making of one of his biggest hit films, Psycho.
Hitchcock is played by Anthony Hopkins, unrecognisable in makeup and Helen Mirren his wife. Their sparring and wit was sparkling and the chemistry sizzled.
Scarlett Johansson  was perfectly cast as Janet Leigh and Michael Wincott as the real life 'psycho'. Talking of which I had no idea it had been based on  a true story and you should be warned there are a few horrifying descriptions of the actual case thrown in!
Please watch out for minor roles played by Toni Colette and a 'blink and you miss it' Ralph Macchio, formerly known as the Karate Kid.

Its a thoroughly entertaining slikc and interesting watch for those interested in holywwod tales of behind the scenes.
