Nick Hume is a mild-mannered executive with a perfect life, until one gruesome night he witnesses something that changes him forever. Transformed by grief, Hume eventually comes to the disturbing conclusion that no length is too great when protecting his family.
This magnificent documentary captures the essence of one of the most influential and innovative directors of the last century: Alfred Hitchcock.
We are in good company as the work of Mr. Hitchcock is examined by the likes of Larry Cohen, Keith Gordon, Joe Dante, Carl Franklin, Ernest Dickerson, Sean Cunningham, and the rest of notables that speak about how they regard the master of suspense himself in a pedestal because he broke ground with the films he left behind.
The 24 minutes of this documentary flies by, practically, and one would like to have more and more. Alfred Hitchcock's legacy is huge and "Hitchcocked" only puts a dent in his larger than life presence. His influence can be traced to many directors, among them, Brian DePalma and Quentin Tarantino, as the most influenced by the man, himself.
Jeffrey Schwartz and his team deserve praise in what they have accomplished in such a limited time. The documentary is a "must see" by all film lovers, and especially fans of Alfred Hitchcock.
