About the Movie

In 1962, Francois Truffaut persuaded Alfred Hitchcock to sit with him for a week long interview in which the great British auteur would share with his young admirer the secrets of his cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting-used to produce the seminal book "Hitchcock/Truffaut”-this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plunges us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds and Vertigo. Hitchcock's singular vision is elucidated and brought vividly to life by today's leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich, and Paul Schrader.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It brings the pages to life with clips and photos and the sound of the directors talking seriously and less seriously. – Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times, Aug 9, 2016

Fresh: The meeting of the two men becomes increasingly fruitful, and there's the sense of a private genius finally allowing himself to tip his hand. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Dec 10, 2015

Fresh: Pretension is always with us, but the documentary's main effect will surely be to make you want to see Hitchcock's films (including the marvel that is Marnie) all over again. – Nancy DeWolf Smith, Wall Street Journal, Aug 8, 2016

Fresh: The two men come alive (responses that seemed dry or diffident on paper are tinged with humor, with audacity, even), and so, too, do the images. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Dec 11, 2015

Stay With The Book

The documentary is ok, some video footage are interesting, but, if you really want to learn the true CINEMA, get a copy of the book Hitchcock / Truffaut. Worth your time reading. Word.
