To recapture his youth's artistic daring, Alfred decides his next film will adapt the lurid horror novel, Психо (1960), over everyone's misgivings. Unfortunately, as Alfred self-finances and labors on this film, Alma finally loses patience with his roving eye and controlling habits with his actresses. When an ambitious friend lures her to collaborate on a work of their own, the resulting marital tension colors Alfred's work even as the novel's inspiration haunts his dreams.

Greetings again from the darkness. Here goes: John J McLaughlin wrote
this "Hitchcock" screenplay based on Stephen Rebello's book "Alfred
Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho", which was based on the filming of
the Psycho screenplay from Joseph Stefano, which was loosely based on
Robert Bloch's book, which was based on the real life crimes of Ed
It's kind of interesting that Alfred Hitchcock is hot again. His
Vertigo recently displaced Citizen Kane as the all-time greatest film.
HBO is still running their recent production of "The Girl", which is
based on Hitchcock's making of "The Birds" and his unhealthy connection
to Tippi Hedren. And now, we get this Hollywood production, supposedly
based on the master of suspense. I saw supposedly, because this film
plays like it was written by the heirs of Alma Reville, Hitch's long
time wife and collaborator. We all knew she worked on his films and
contributed ideas, but the film wants you to believe she was the real
genius behind the public genius.
The movie is entitled "Hitchcock" and is based on the making of
"Psycho", but in fact, it's more the story of Alma and her husband.
While there is nothing wrong with that story ... in fact, it is quite
interesting and entertaining ... it's just kind of false advertising.
Helen Mirren portrays Alma, and instead of the mousy woman who usually
faded into the background, we see a fairly strong and talented woman
who goes toe-to-toe with Hitch in her best scene. Sir Anthony Hopkins
dons some facial appliances and a fat suit and does a solid job of
capturing the odd, creepy, leering, disturbed, insecure genius we
recognize as Alfred Hitchcock. He comes across as louder and more
in-motion than what we have previously seen. And while director Sacha
Gervasi makes it clear that Hitch is not a "normal" guy, he doesn't
dwell too much on the blond fixations.
The emphasis on the skills and importance of Alma would be fine were it
not so exaggerated. Surely every great director and writer and artist
has a muse and/or support system; and, there is no question Alma was a
very talented lady, but her strength here bordered on distracting to
the overall picture. Especially needless was the storyline of Alma
being attracted to screenwriter Whitfield Cook (Danny Huston), who
wrote "Strangers on a Train" for Hitchcock.
The Hitchcock humor is allowed to shine through and his battles with
Paramount Studio head Barney Balaban (Richard Portnow) and the
censorship board (Kurtwood Smith) are excellent. Hopkins finds the
humanity under the fat suit and is especially good in his work with
Scarlett Johansson (as Janet Leigh) and Jessica Biel (as Vera Miles). I
also got a kick out of James D'Arcy as the affected Anthony Perkins and
all his quirky mannerisms.
Though this barely qualifies as a story on the making of Psycho, it was
chilling to watch the addition of Bernard Herrmann's iconic score added
to the shower scene. In fact, Danny Elfman does a nice job of subtly
adding a Herrmann-type score to this film. I'm not sure if the film
will play well with real Hitchcock aficionados, but if you can forgive
the Alma slant, it's actually quite interesting and entertaining and
kind of a sweet film at its core.
