RMN Quick Critique: Hitchcock (2012)




        Although I was relieved to see that the film’s storyline was about Alfred Hitchcock’s wife and her involvement in his career, I was disappointed by the inconsistency of the narrative. Filmmaker Sacha Gervasi attempts too many visual and mood references, all in a convoluted effort to insinuate Hitchcock inserted himself into the characters of his films. The best parts of this film are the real-life studio struggles and the subsequent marketing ploys Hitchcock used to draw audiences into Psycho, and the performances by stars Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren.
