HITCHCOCK…behind every psycho is a great woman

hitchcock_ver5As I have written here before, I am a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock films. I have watched many of them many times over and I have lots of favorite ones.

Today I watched the film Hitchcock in which Anthony Hopkins played Alfred Hitchcock and Helen Mirrin played his wife Alma.  I am unsure of the accuracy of this film, but I found it very enjoyable.   Although I have only seen Psycho twice, the people that played the parts for this film were well matched.

Here is the plot summary that IMD wrote up for the film made last year.

In 1959, Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma, are at the top of their creative game as filmmakers amid disquieting insinuations about it being time to retire. To recapture his youth’s artistic daring, Alfred decides his next film will adapt the lurid horror novel, Psycho, 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.

    The scariest Hitchcock movie i ever saw, and will always remember, was ‘Wait until dark’, in 1967. Hubby and I couldn’t sleep that night; we were so traumatised. 😀
