HBO's The Girl Explores Hitchcock's Inner Psycho

Sienna Miller

We always suspected he was a little off his rocker...but who knew he was this creepy and crazy? The late Alfred Hitchcock was the uncontested master of horror and suspense, a director so obsessed with murder and mayhem — much of it aimed at women — that one can't truly analyze his films without a Carl Jung handbook nearby.
