What the Critics say

Helen Herimbi Artistic turning point for director.
Todd McCarthy 'Psycho' Hitchcock.
Pete Hammond The 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.
Peter Travers Hopkins 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 Though it suffers from tonal inconsistency and a lack of truly insightful retrospection, Hitchcock is elevated by inspired performances from its two distinguished leads.
