Rated PG-13 · 98 minutes · 2012
Anthony Hopkins’ nice-try impersonation of Alfred Hitchcock is only the starting point for this playfully watchable movie-movie tribute to the Master of Suspense, set during the production of Psycho in 1960. The main job for director Sacha Gervasi (Anvil: The Story of Anvil) is to introduce the cast-within-the-cast – Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles – and to let them play off each other. But the soul of the film is in the homey relationship of Hitch and his wife/editor/writing consultant/muse Alma Reville (a radiant Helen Mirren), bickering their way to screen immortality in shaping Hitchcock’s biggest box office hit. Worth seeing for its unexpected humor, especially in the tussles with Universal and the censor (Kurtwood Smith). Screenplay by John J. McLaughlin (Black Swan), adapted from a book by Stephen Rebello. (98 min.)
