Dir. Sacha Gervasi. 2012. 98mins. Anthony Hopkins's hambone tendencies are perfectly suited to this arched-eyebrow biopic, a True Hollywood story so cheeky and thin it makes My Week with Marilyn seem substantial. Relegating the making of Psycho to the sidelines, the film instead focuses on a heavily fictionalized account of Hitch's sexless marriage. Admission includes a discounted ticket price to the director's 1960 masterpiece—but why not just see that alone?
