‘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.

You are a charming man, Norman Bates. Your mild manner and meek demeanor are disarming and endearing. Of course we’d like to share a plate of sandwiches and some milk with you, and we’re very sorry if we caused any conflict with your mother.
