Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren are typically credible as legendary "master of suspense" Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma, in director Sacha Gervasi's docudrama, but the bigger interest is the movie's detailing of the complications - financial and...
Alfred Hitchcock's reputation as a filmmaker was already on the rise when he died 32 years ago. Since then it has consistently (and rightly) grown ever greater. At the same time, his reputation as a person has taken a lot of blows ... whether rightly or...
Times Staff WriterPierce Brosnan, looking suitably woolly and grizzled, stars as a man on the run from his past in the period suspense western "Seraphim Falls." A beautifully shot chase film by writer-director David Von Ancken and co-writer Abby Everett Jaques, it moves...
