Hitchcock

The untold story behind the film that shocked the world


Hitchcock
Alfred Hitchcock, despite his reputation, had great difficulty filming his most famous film, Psycho. Facing opposition from the studio, he mortgaged his house to raise the money to make the film. The stress inevitably spilled over into his marriage, and having a pretty young starlet under his wing didn't help matters there either. In the end, the result was worth it, and his marriage also survived.

Box Office
Pete Hammond quote iconThe making of the 1960 classic Psycho is deftly weaved with a touching look at the personal and professional partnership of Alfred Hitchcock and his wife Alma in a flick that should please aficionados of the Master of Suspense and audiences interested in a unique love story that stood the test of time, despite Hitch's fixation on affairs, lies and murder.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconHopkins 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.

Tomatometer quote iconThough it suffers from tonal inconsistency and a lack of truly insightful retrospection, Hitchcock is elevated by inspired performances from its two distinguished leads.
