    Hitchcock



    watched Hitchcock on HBO last night. I was very surprised. This is one great movie. Starring Anthony Hopkins as the great Alfred Hitcock. Also starring Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johannson, Danny Huston, Jessica Biel and a lot of other great actors. It tales the story of the difficulties Hitchcock had getting Psycho made. I knew he had hard time with it but I had no idea it was as hard as it was. He really had to fight pretty much everybody to get this movie made.

    There is also a great performance by Michael Wincott playing Ed Gein the inspiration for Norman Bates. There are a couple times during the movie that Alfred pretends he's talking to Ed and it makes for some pretty good stuff. My favorite line of the movie is when he says "They call me Hitch. Hold the cock". I literally sprayed my drink everywhere and burst out laughing when he said that. It also has a pretty nice ending scene that made me smile. Good movie if you're a fan.

    I was blown away by Hopkins as Hitchcock. A lot of times its hard for a big name star to disappear into a role where you aren't supposed to see the famous face you're seeing (atleast in my opinion). But 5 minutes into this movie I wasn't seeing Hopkins at all.

    I'm a bit mixed on this movie. Hopkins and Mirren are great. Johanssen and Biel can suck a dick, though.

    As for Michael Wincott, it's uncanny how much he looks he like Ed Gein. Would have liked to see him do a proper Ed Gein movie.

    Hopkins is nothing less than brilliant as an actor

    I thought the exact same thing when I saw him in this role.

    He's a very unique actor.. that voice sounds like he's swallowed a handful of gravel.

    Really great flick. I liked the whole cast except for Biel. I like her but didn't think she fit the role.
