Pretty good flick about Alfred Hitchcock and his struggle to get "Psycho" onto the silver screen. Also gets into Hollywood infidelity and Janet leigh's struggle with her role a Norman Bates' 1st victim. Also, Helen Mirren turns in a great performance. (P.S. Check out Helen in the 1960's film "Age of Consent". She was really a hottie!!!)

An entertaining look at the making of a classic movie. Fabulously acted and very interesting.

I was skeptical as to Hopkin's portraying such a notable character, but he did amazing... not just in body language, but somehow he managed to do the voice and pacing of the accent brilliantly. Cleverly delivered. This is the Hitchcock bio i chose to see....

This was kind of a fun movie, probably not too accurate, but I liked it anyway.

Solid acting by Hopkins/Mirren mostly wasted by the director who previously has done comedy (The Terminal). Who knows what the written script started out as? The main way this was ill-used was having it be too light. Maybe dir Sacha Gervasi was ‘trying’ for Hitch’s unique mix of dark and light; possibly Ivan Reitman’s producing lightened it. Anyway, it was stillborn all across. Still very watchable, but a waste. The book could be juicy... -— Most important idea here is that Hitch’s wife, Alma had what looked like at least an equal part in the quality of “Psycho” and maybe all the rest; the usual story.

Love this movie. No action, no special effects, but just plain old-fashion good story telling. When i watched the movie, I saw Hitchcock, not Hopkins. Mirren was her usual superb self. Coudn't tell Biel was Miles. For the adrenaline junkie, this might be boring, but for those who appreciate a compelling story, this is a fun movie.

Great acting all around but especially by Mirren. Being the backstory of the making of Psycho, the film was interesting. And the period look was pretty good. Solid entertainment.
