"Hitchcock" Stresses the Superficial, Not Suspense

HitchcockPosterNewStabHelenfull4Producer and director Alfred Hitchcock is regarded as one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. His work in the suspense genre inspired strong emotions in both his fans and his detractors. Reviewer Abby Olcese (ohl-CHESS-ee) says a new film that offers an inside view of Hitchcock's work on the movie "Psycho" could use a little more of that emotion, and a little less detachment.



"Hitchcock" has been playing in limited release nationwide; it opened this week in Lawrence and Kansas City. Abby Olcese (ohl-CHESS-see) writes about movies for Kansas Public Radio. You can see more of her work at her blog, No More
