I love movies about movies. And so we come to Hitchcock. That's both Mister and Missus Hitchcock, though he retains centre stage. 

This is really the story of how Psycho (1960) came to be made, a story which falls firmly within the tradition of great movies that had to overcome enormous odds and studio objections to make it onto the screen. 

Anthony Hopkins does a superb job as Hitch, especially in capturing that voice.

Scarlett Johansson does an even better job as Janet Leigh.

Helen Mirren is wonderful as Alma Reville.

And Toni Collette continues her long-standing practice of popping up in unlikely places.

Here's the trailer.

"Try the finger sandwiches. They're real fingers." I can see the appeal, Henry.
