      Growing up, my TV intake was severely restricted. Most TV shows were forbidden, except for anything on PBS, some Nickelodean or old reruns on Nick at Nite. This prohibition on the consumption of entertainment naturally included movies as well. Most new movies were proscribed, unless they were cartoons, or carefully selected and approved by my mother. My parents weren’t religious fanatics,* just over-protective. They were particularly interested in restricting anything that had any overt sexual [...]

      Guest Review by Adam PhilipsIn this gorgeous new book, “Hitchcock: Piece by Piece,” author Laurent Bouzereau provides a new angle on The Master of Suspense. Rather than covering Hitch’s biography or looking at highlights of his filmmaking career, Bouzereau sorts Hitch’s works thematically into several lengthy chapters.

      Doesn't provide a lot of detailed information for Hitchcock buffs, but it does give a good overview of his life work. Also, the removable "pieces" in the book make it fun and interactive.

Interspersed with these are select photographs of the director at work and at [...]

      Hitchcock is always fascinating - his intelligence, his ability to mix suspense with a sarcastic humor and to create movies which border perfection, to say the least. This book presents the reader with treasures such as a copy of Hitch's birth certificate, copies of family pictures, letters between him and producers, sketches of movie scenes, scripts And the text itself presents us with several of the many notable trademarks of his movies (the Hitch touches), such as the wrong men, the notable w [...]

      This is a perfect book. It focuses on his art and only refers to his private life when it impacts his films. Very balanced look at Hitchcock, with a ton of fun replicas to view. It features an outstanding filmography. Perfect book.
