A movie about Alfred Hitchock, but the woman behind the director; his wife Alma Deville, played by Helen Mirren. This movie forcuses on the most important part of Hitchcock's career, and this is making a horro film called "Psycho," a film which challenges the Hayes Codes and possibly gave birth the mad slasher films that is yet to come. Anthony Hopkins gives a brilliant performance as Hitchock, a man who takes risk with most of his movie including the film that is the forcus of the movie, "Psycho." It based on "The Making of Psycho." a book that I have read many years ago, so after the movie if a copy of the book is lying arouynd the house, you shouyld read it. Helen Mirran's performance is very strong and very brilliant. both Hopkins and Mirran deserves Oscar nominations. This movie teaches you how to make a movie in 1960, especially a risk taking movie like "Psycho." The next time "Psycho" appears on Turner Classic Movies and I'm watching it, I'll be think of "Hitchcock."
