“As an interpretation of a major talent's inner life and imagination, it's undeniably lively and provocative.”~Hollwood Reporter
Aroview: Anthony Hopkins plays the one and only Master of Suspense in this polished recreation of the making of the director's most famous film, PSYCHO.
Steeped in elegant 1950's nostalgia, this plays like a close cousin to fellow behind-the-scenes speculation, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN, succesfully channeling Hitchcock's personal insecurities and frustrations with the Hollywood establishment into a dramatic narrative and provides edifying context around the landmark horror film. Most memorable, though, is one blackly comic scene (perhaps a classic in its own right) of Hitchcock's playful indulgence at the 'Psycho' premiere.

3 stars (Good Enough) The production values are quality. Hopkins does a remarkable job on his posture and voice and the make up people do the rest. A wonderful cutting performance from Helen Mirren adds value.~tubbs
