Movie Reviews

DVD Trouble
Joshua A. Bevan | Charlotte, NC USA | 11/08/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I am very sorry to report troubles with this DVD. The encoding is not up to par, causing serious jerkiness, and the interview stops dead in its tracks about 15 minutes into the film.I have never had any problems with other DVDs, and am very dissapointed that this one was so bad. From what little I heard of the interview, it seemed to have been very good."
Great for Hitchcock buffs

"Got this dvd recently, did not experience any playback problems mentioned by another reviewer. There is some jerkiness, but I don't think it's a problem with the transfer, but rather because this is an interview on film that is decades old. The real point of this title is not sound/picture quality (which are fine, to me) but the content, and Hitch's anecdotes and discussions of his techniques are real gems for die-hard fans, especially those who haven't seen the master himself talking about his work."

"It was rare for Hitch to do interviews and this is quite a good one. Definitely a must see if you are in any way a fan. I found his comments about film in the year 3000 with hypnotism being used quite fascinating. The only weakness is the "interviewer" who seems to be very pleased with himself and speaks in a effected and cockamamie television interviewer voice that grates on you after awhile. It also could have been longer. But Hitch is the reason to see this and as always he delivers. On a sidenote there is some very cool footage of Tippi Hedren and Sean Connery on the set of Marnie in this and one segment where Hitch discusses the tricks of editing(they cut from Hitch smiling and looking at a mother and her child to Hitch smiling again the same way but this time a cut to a young woman in a bikini)left me laughing hysterically."
