Movie Review: Homage to Hitchcock

BEHIND every great man there's a great woman, as was the case through the life of Alfred Hitchcock.

Alma Reville was Hitch's wife and collaborator throughout his career and this interesting, humorous film explores their relationship.

Hitchcock is a playful telling of the Hollywood folklore surrounding the making of Psycho and the notorious obsessions of Hitch himself. Stylistic- ally the film is a homage to the great man. It's jam-packed with visual references to various films and Danny Elfman has more than tipped his cap to the music of Hitchcock's long-time associate Bernard Herrmann.

The performances are excellent, especially Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh. Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren portray the marriage beautifully but sadly their relationship takes a back seat to the fascinating studio story of Psycho.

Ultimately, Hitchcock is a good movie but suffers under the weight of assumed knowledge. Brush off your copy of Psycho before you head into this movie and you will get a lot more out of it.
