This is a film I will see several more times than just once.It includes tense scenes, comedy and some real history and insight into the lives and careers pf Sir Alfred Hitchcock and his talented wife Alma Reville.

Helen Mirren is likely the best part of this movie. She is believable as Alma Reville and hilarious  great fun to watch.  She also has scenes of anger well played. Her character is the most lifelike of them all.

Anthony Hopkins is humorous and frightening by turns as Hitchcock. This is probably a true representation, considering the insights of his many biographers. The fat suit on Anthony Hopkins is too fat, however, but is it fun to see the Hitchcock silhouette everywhere in the film, especially behind screens and in shadows.

The film is part truth and part parody, but all good. You might enjoy the hallucinations of speaking with multiple murderer Ed Gein as well. See more about the film and related biographical books at:
