Many of Alfred Hitchcock's movies, from 'Psycho' to 'Vertigo' to 'Rear Window,' are about voyeurism, so the idea of peering into Hitchcock's own previously hidden private life does make a certain amount of sense. But if 'Hitchcock' resonates with some of the Master of Suspense's ideas, it's never faithful to his spirit.

That’s a bit of a shock, given the fact that the busy Thanksgiving weekend seemed to be set with Ang Li’s ‘Life of Pi,’ David O. Russell’s ‘The Silver Linings Playbook’ and the animated ‘Rise of the Guardians.’ But now we’re tasked with figuring out if Searchlight has an Oscar player up its sleeve.
