The movie can't quite live up to the performances
HOLLYWOOD – There have been many movies about the history of the movie industry, but it’s surprising it took this long for someone to bring the life of Alfred Hitchcock to the big screen. The legendary filmmaker captained an impressive list of classic films including “Vertigo,” “North by Northwest,” “The 39 Steps,” “The Lady Vanishes” and “Dial M for Murder” among others. And with his TV series “Alfred Hitchcock Presents…” he became one of the most recognizable directors and celebrities of the 1950’s. His biggest hit, however, was one of his latter films, 1960’s “Psycho.” Hitchcock’s obsession with making that “horror” film sets the stage for Sacha Gervasi’s “Hitchcock,” which opened the 2012 AFI Film Fest Thursday night.
