Hitchcock (2012)

**Seen in January 2013**

love story between influential filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock and wife Alma Reville during the filming of Psycho in 1959. [imdb]

Nominated for 1 Oscar:
Best Makeup and Hairstyling

A film that lacks depth, imagination and exciting performances. The acting ranges from extremely forgettable to average, and I'm surprised they came up with such a dull screenplay when "psycho" was the topic for discussion.

What could've been an exciting biopic ended up as a waste of money, with no visition to it. I question this Oscar nomination itself, since there were worthier contenders in the mix.

My rating for the film: 4.5/10.  I'm happy Dame Helen Mirren didn't get nominated, though she was this close. She brings too little to an already poorly written part.
