If “Hitchcock” ultimately feels inconsequential, it always aims to please, and for the most part, it does. As Alma says at one point, even “Psycho,” after all, was just a movie.

Hitchcock,” a Fox Searchlight release, is rated PG-13 for some violent images, sexual content and thematic material. Running time: 98 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.


Motion Picture Association of America rating definition for PG-13: Special parental guidance strongly suggested for children under 13. Some material may be inappropriate for young children.
