In 1962 Hitchcock and Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting-used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut-this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of Psycho, The Birds, and Vertigo. Hitchcock's incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today's leading filmmakers: Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader.

The only section missing in the film is a discussion of the MUSIC inHitchcock films especially the work and career of BERNARD HERMANN!Neither director touched on the scores for VERTIGO, PSYCHO, or THEBRIDE WORE BLACK. Others like WAXMAN and TIOMPKIN were also neglected!Soundtracks are an integral part of both director's work! Shame on you!Also there was no discussion of the score for TORN CURTAIN! Why noHermann score and a substitute for one by by John Barry? You can writean entire book on film noir music or THE SOUNDS OF DARKNESS. Thinkabout PSYCHO and the "shower scene" without music. It loses itschilling effect. What about James Stewart hanging from a roof gutter inVERTIGO? And that haunting "love theme" in VERTIGO, when Stewart isfollowing Kim Novak in his car and the crescendo of waves breakingagainst the shore when they finally embrace? I can cite many moremoments where music was crucial to a scene in Hitchcock's work, toomany to enumerate here. I just had wished the directors and filmmakerswould have discussed this important phase of both director's work.
