After watching HBO's THE GIRL, starring Toby Jones as the famed director and Sienna Miller as Tippi Dedren, I found the portrayal to be very off putting. In many ways I felt that it soured the director's reputation (even if it were completely true), which isn't hard to believe if you've seen the film. It's a powerful, creepy film, which I really enjoyed, but have to say that it makes me look forward to Anthony Hopkins portrayal as the master in HITCHCOCK. It looks much lighter and playful, which could just be indicative of the period in his career. In the long run, I think both films will be complimentary to one another and serve as a back-to-back viewing of the highlights of the director's career.

Today, we have some new pics from the film, featuring Scarlett Johansson, Helen Mirren, Jessica Biel Timberlake, Toni Collette, and James D'Arcy. Overall, I think this is shaping up to be a really compelling look at the making of PSYCHO and the idiosyncrasies of all involved.

HITCHCOCK is set for a limited release on November 23, 2012 and goes wide on January 10, 2013.

Check out the trailer for HITCHCOCK again, followed by the trailer for HBO's THE GIRL for an interesting chronological look at the director...

I rant about this only because the end of the article 100% invited it: 'The Girl' should NOT be taken in as ANYTHING resembling "fact," besides ONE woman's publicity-hungry allegations. Hitchcock worked with HUNDREDS upon HUNDREDS of actresses, be they stars or side characters, main leads or anonymous screaming victims in the background, and not one, NEVER, has EVER said ANYTHING bad about him...except for just...this...one. I'm sorry, but "The Girl" should only be taken as a fictionalization

That said, THIS film...meh, it could be okay. Maybe. (The choices of actors and actresses are way off - Whoopi Goldberg would be more likely to turn in a convincing Hitch!)

it was okay

the movie wasnt as quirky as the trailer made it out to be. wasn't bad by any means, but just kind of felt very vanilla. that being said, i did enjoy my time with it.
