‘Hitchcock’ and ‘Smashed’ may not have the kind of heavy drama you’d expect from their subject matters, but each movie, out now on Blu-ray and DVD, works on its own terms.

The ability of an actor to transform for a role is one of the most important aspects in making a film not just good – but memorable. What really impresses me is when they take on a role that I wouldn’t consider just challenging – but maybe a bit frightening. These are the kind of roles you don’t want to lose yourself in – because it would be dangerous.
