I read the Bloch book, back as a teen. It is vastly different (the trailer mentions the decapitation), and I remember thinking it was badly written, but I was a snobby teen who thought most books were badly written. :P I have it kicking around somewhere, and should read it again... The only other thing I remember is Leigh's character has a lot more interaction with Norman (probably one reason it was so shocking that she's killed off so early in the movie).

Strummer, I didn't even notice James D'Arcy in the trailer--but that's, look wise, perfect casting for Perkins.

I've seen PSYCHO a number of times and I always get sucked into it. I don't know why, but every time I've seen it, I get stupid. I always forget the ending. It's so weird. I wish I knew why.

Not sure how anyone can think the trailer for this does not look fantastic. I am so excited for this after seeing the trailer and i must be one of the biggest Hitchcock fans around (i even named my company after one of his films)

I hate the title. It's so uninspired. They should've named it something that had to do with the story they're telling. Simply calling it Hitchcock makes it seem like a boring, bio-pic. It would be like calling Hyde Park on Hudson simply Roosevelt. I hate it when they did the same with Capote. A more inventive title would've gotten me to see it sooner. I'd read In Cold Blood as a teen and loved it. Had I known the movie was about the making of that book (and not his life story), I would've been there opening day.

I believe I am still in the minority who hated Capote and would just recommend people seeing the film adaptation of In Cold Blood. Infamous wasn't too bad and it contains more Capote stuff.

...I loathe the film adaptation of In Cold Blood.

Hitchcock originally shared the name of the book it's based on, the wordier and more-on-the-nose Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.

Besty, you described my exact reaction to the trailer. On another note, I got the Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection on Blu-ray at Costco, for $163.00, which is the cheapest I've seen it. THE BIRDS looks fantastic!

Eh, looks run of the mill, but since I watch all those crappy Oscar movies anyway, at least this one will be about Hitchcock.

Sort of expecting THE GIRL to be better.

"A series of pointless dream/fantasy interludes show Hitchcock consorting with Ed Gein (Michael Wincott), the serial killer who served as the real-life inspiration for Norman Bates, as if only someone a little nutty himself could have made a great film out of "Psycho." "

WTF?

"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

Off to see it in about an hour...will report back.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I enjoyed this film a lot. Hopkins and Mirren were both fantastic. I wonder if they will be remembered come Oscar time?

The problem HITCHCOCK has is that is has to compete with a strong month of releases which will overshadow it.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
--Aristotle

Interesting article.
Book vs Film
"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter
