DVD & Blu-ray review: Hitchcock (12)

Sacha Gervasi DVD/Blu-ray (98mins)

Anthony Hopkins plays the British auteur about to embark on his spiciest work, Psycho.

The studios are hesitant to fund the slasher, so Hitch and his loyal wife, Alma (Helen Mirren), risk everything and mortgage their home to make it. The highlight here is James D'Arcy as the awkward Anthony Perkins. But it lacks the spite and wit of the BBC's recent Hitchcock film The Girl. 609 of June 10, 2013.
