Hitchcock’s so enigmatic in one sense… Someone who portrays zero emotion. We didn’t really know emotionally that much about Hitchcock, and suddenly you have this whole world that opens up when Anthony Hopkins plays the role. It’s extraordinary. And he really enjoyed tiptoeing up to people who had just arrived on the set and going, ‘Good evening.’ Making people jump. I think he really found the role quite delicious.As you already know the film takes place during the making of Hitchcock’s seminal movie Psycho, which faced criticism because of its horror thriller nature and had only a small budget.
