The Silver Bullet ~ Hitchcock

Synopsis: A love story between influential filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock and wife Alma Reville during the filming of Psycho in 1959.

Release Date:  November 23, 2012

Thoughts: The master of the thriller seems to be a hot topic this year.  From a new box set of his work released on BluRay and a HBO biopic on his obsession with Tippi Hedren coming in late October, Alfred Hitchcock is having a nice little renaissance.  This big screen adaptation of Stephen Rebello’s novel “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” is high on my list of anticipated 2012 films.  The preview is a nice blend of cheeky exchanges and dramatic fodder that Hitchcock was so very fond of.  Assembling a stellar cast led by two Oscar winners, first time feature director Sacha Gervasi appears to have done his homework and paid homage to the legend.  I have a good feeling about this one.
