View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Based on the famous series of dialogues between Francois Truffaut and Alfred Hitchcock from the 1960s, the book moves chronologically through Hitchcock's films to discuss his career, techniques, and effects he achieved. It changed the way Hitchcock was perceived, as a popular director of suspense films - such as Psycho and The Birds - and revealed to moviegoers and critics, the depth of Hitchcock's perception and his mastery of the art form.

As a result of the changed perceptions about Hitchcock, his masterpiece, Vertigo, hit the No 1 slot in Sight & Sound's recent poll of film-makers and critics, displacing Citizen Kane as the Best Film of all time.

The finest-ever book-length interview with a director. Hitch is expansive, teasing, urbane, full of anecdotes and clearly relishing the attention; Truffault is respectful but probing, bringing his own directorial know-how to bear ... in the wake of 2015's Hitchcock/Truffault documentary, helmed by Kent Jones, Faber & Faber has republished [the] second edition, even more lavishly illustrated. But be warned - dip into a page or two and you'll be hooked for hours... (Philip Kemp Total Film)

Absurdly entertaining, gossipy and insightful. Hitchcock is brilliant on editing, suspense, casting, adaptation
and moviemaking as a business. Anyone with an interest in film should read it.

(David Nicholls, author of One Day)
