the movie got 66% on RottenTomatoes 'Though it suffers from tonal inconsistency and a lack of truly insightful retrospection, Hitchcock is elevated by inspired performances from its two distinguished leads.'
I actually thought the film worked very wellfantastic performances from the leads, Hopkins, Mirren and Johansson all do marvelouslythe film looks like it's going to focus on the biography of one of cinema's most famous directorsbut it actually covers his filmmaking experience along with his marriage on the rocks on the bumpy road to make his next big masterpieceHitchcock tries to cut through corners to get the production rolling and he tries to not be suaded by studio executives, getting his seal of approval and being very risqueat the time his vision was very controversial, many considered that a film of this caliber wasn't as appealingthe story at times feels very disjointed considering they use the character of Ed Gein a lot as his spiritual advisorit also feels off that his wife, Alma has certain issues with his life's workbut the film still keeps its own thanks to some talented people, a dominant score and good makeup effectsthere were also some amazing appearances from actors long gone such as a Anthony Perkins stand-in and Jessica Biel as Vera Mylesthe movie is a great tribute to other great examples of horror, toonothing says success like a filmmaker who loves murder and scaring audiencesHitchcock remains the master of suspense and his most famous work, Psycho still holds the title for setting the bar for the modern horror genrethis is a good film that forever immortalizes the prestigious director
I almost drooled when I saw both Biel and Johansson in the same film!
Did y'all walk out halfway through the film?
I think the bits with Gein were there to illustrate how deep he goes into the character as a director. Hitchcock channels Gein in order to tell his story.
I felt the pressure in the relationship between Hitch and Alma growing, and I did not get the sense that anyone thought the directors treatment of women was "cute". He came off as reserved, not comic, to me.
Well the Spill crew is not aware of how film makers marketed there film during the time of Physco, Hitchcock trailers to Psycho and other films had him walking around describing the setting this was a product of his time. I have not seen the film, but I can tell by your responses some of you are not as knowledgeable on the director.
I learned a lot about him believe it or not in one of my ENG courses in college
Here is the trailer which I think you guys are conveying to in the movie (I have not yet seen it so I do know for certain) And by the way the serial killer in the original Psycho is loosely based off Ed Gein like you guys mentioned, and Ed Gein grew up a Xenophobic and was very close to his mother, so the reflection of his sexual gender confusion contributes to this aspect of Ed Gein which was inspired by him.
Why would Brian not be a part of this review.... WTF!?
Tippi Hedren said Hitchock sexually harassed her and ruined her career. How is he not an asshole?
I miss steak, randomly.
For Scarlet Johanson in the Avengers, she's the character that did the most stuff in the movie. Maybe she didn't have the biggest emotional journey like the others but it's because her character is a fairly stable emotional place during it unlike Tony, Steve or Bruce. I still feel Black Widow was among the more important characters of that movie.
