Maysa Moncao’s film review of the documentary about the creation of the seminal biography of film director Alfred Hitchcock, authored by fellow director Francois Truffaut, via the Toronto International Film Festival.
If you desire to be more than an ordinary film-goer, you should spend some of your time reading ’Hitchcock/Truffaut’.

Do you want to ask questions of your favourite directors and actors? Can’t afford to get to Canada? Find out inside how, via the wonder of Maysa and Twitter, you can ‘gain access’ to red carpet treats!
Our reviewer in… Maysa Moncao wants you to get your questions across to to stars and big wigs at September’s Toronto International Film Festival.
As regular readers will know, ‘Our reviewer in…’ Maysa Moncao slams the film festival junket on your behalf, season in and season out, to selflessly give you a glimpse of the best international independent cinema has to offer.
In September she will be off to Toronto to update you on the hottest of indie film, as well as providing unique insights into modern filmmaking and interviews with top movie talent.
But this doesn’t come cheap. A flight to Toronto can cost enough to financially cripple any talented, freelance reviewer.
So I’m putting my money where my mouth is and stumping up the first 50 quid to get our reviewer the other side of the pond.
My promise? To update you all with the utmost immediacy about what she sees, what she thinks and why you should see the films she has pounded the screens to watch.
Are you with me? Yes, but think it’s too much too much to support this worthy cause?
I’ve calculated that if all of you give just £5, it’ll be enough to ensure you get the most verbose and insightful (and hot of the press) low-down of the next year’s cinema schedule, and your ultimate film viewing schedule.
Not much, considering the quality of comment of obvious passion for cinema given in return.
