Latest Anthony Hopkins Items
This isn’t a movie for those who crave finely tuned plotting. Like its titular hero, this superhero sequel is big and broad and self-satisfied but not terribly concerned with the details. For those who like special-effects-ridden hero films, which, judging by recent box-office numbers, appears to be just about everyone, it’s also reasonably entertaining as well.
For his first professional acting job, a 22-year-old Anthony Hopkins took a train from South Wales to Manchester. With time to kill on a rainy day, he dropped off his bags and headed to the movies, where a long queue wound outside the cinema. The movie was, of course, Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho."

This isn't the sort of movie Hitchcock would have made, but the spare screenplay and excellent performances do honor to its subject.
The man who made "Psycho" was no lightweight, though he kind of comes off that way in "Hitchcock."
