Hitchcock (John J. McLaughlin & Stephen Rebello)
Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Danny Huston, Toni Collette, Jessica Biel, James D'Arcy, Kurtwood Smith, Ralph Macchio
Why I loved this film: Not being a Hitchcock fan because I did not know much about the film-maker to consider myself a fan, I have come to respect the 'man' and the 'genius'. I do not know how accurate this is, yet 'unrecognisable' Anthony Hopkins does a remarkable job. I love it when an actor makes you forget they are acting, and that is exactly what Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren do. There could be no better choices for these characters!
The movie itself is also really good with some pretty creepy aspects, but then this is the story of how 'Psycho' was made. Although it is not exactly a biography of Hitchcock, this is a movie not to be missed!
