Number 1000!!! – Friday, October 28th - Larry H. publishes his one thousandth movie review 1997-2022
  
Hitchcock
Released:  November 23, 2012
Some will call this movie the love story and creative collaboration of Hitch (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife Alma (Helen Mirren) while others will see it as simply the behind-the-scenes production of Hitchcock’s famous 1960 “Psycho.” One needs to remember that in the early 60’s, the shower scene was way over the top for the stuffed-shirt movie executives and surely one could not show blood and nudity. We now know that Hitch made us think we saw both when in fact we saw blood going down the shower drain and let one’s imagination take over.
And that screeching and music still haunts most of us…eeekeeekeeekeeekeeek!!!!!!
Hopkins’s Hitchcock was masterful and will surely earn him a nomination and perhaps the gold. Mirren was her usual magnificent self and the film was beautifully edited and directed by the 46-year-old Brit Sacha Gervasi. His career will never be the same; you will no longer ask “who is that chap?”
“Hitchcock” has not been widely seen and certain not a box office hit, but do yourself a favor and put it on your Christmas Season list and be sure to see one of the first-rate movies of the year. Rock ‘n Roll.
