Book Overview

Iconic, groundbreaking interviews of Alfred Hitchcock by film critic Fran ois Truffaut--providing insight into the cinematic method, the history of film, and one of the greatest directors of all time.

In Hitchcock, film critic Fran ois Truffaut presents fifty hours of interviews with Alfred Hitchcock about the whole of his vast directorial career, from his silent movies in Great Britain to his color films in Hollywood. The result is a portrait of one of the greatest directors the world has ever known, an all-round specialist who masterminded everything, from the screenplay and the photography to the editing and the soundtrack. Hitchcock discusses the inspiration behind his films and the art of creating fear and suspense, as well as giving strikingly honest assessments of his achievements and failures, his doubts and hopes. This peek into the brain of one of cinema's greats is a must-read for all film aficionados.

Hitchcock provides excellent insights into Terrific Works through discussion about each of his films. Include his intentions, his disappointments, and his ideas about the film overall.
In Hitch's own words, It is no better source of information than that. And Fracoise Trauffaut, who asked the questions.
   They say...
If you need a book about filmmaking... it is this one! Everyone says it and they are damn right!
   Valuable insights for cinema buffs
You don 't have to admire Hitchcock to enjoy the discussions of techniques he uses in his films to great effect -- Truffaut asks the kind of probing questions I probably wouldn 't know to ask, so I value his insights as an auteur director himself.

I have many books on film and in directors and this is one of the best.

These are some of the big things about filmmaking that made Hitchcock a little thing. This enjoyed very much, very much.
For any filmmaking fan especially directors, Alfred Hitchcock should be considered the epitome of a filmmaker's library.
   A very boring book. i find nothing with value here
Here i find nothing of value, just a small talk with A.H, nothing more. This book is only for those who are hardcore fans of A.H. and have watched all his films. It is possible that it is because I am not a hardcore fan.
   A must for a film buff's library
A must have book for every Hitchcock fan and Francois Truffaut. It is detailed and historical. A must have for every film buff.
