MY NAME IS ALFRED HITCHCOCK, Director: Mark Cousins UK, 2022
What if Alfred Hitchcock, cinema’s enduring master of suspense, were able to guide us through a personal and brilliantly witty behind-the-scenes commentary on his films from beyond the grave, forty-three years after his death? That is the premise of this highly entertaining documentary, a Hitchcock fan’s dream packed with tasty clips from virtually every one of his masterworks. Through the magic of the movies and the art of actor-impersonator Alistair McGowan, the great director is resurrected in all his sardonic humor and tongue-in-cheek pomposity. This spot-on “Hitchcock” views a larger-than-life monument to himself in a London courtyard with some mixed feelings, then embarks on an incisive and revealing tour through his films, with cheeky observations on preoccupations including escape, desire, loneliness, and much more.
“Feels like a time-travel machine…Hitch feels brought to life again.” -Christian Zilko, IndieWire
“As a primer on the master’s ingenious methods, MY NAME IS ALFRED HITCHCOCK is a treat.” -Graham Fuller, The Arts Desk
Laurence Leamer, Author of Hitchcock’s Blondes: The Unforgettable Women Behind The Legendary Director’s Dark Obsession, will be present for audience discussion.
