Director François Truffaut interviewed Alfred Hitchcock over a period of 8 days on the subject of his impact on cinema and then published it as a book in 1966. This film explores some of the more interesting bits of conversation and the influence it had on many of the modern visually-driven directors of today. Jones manages to turn the subject matter into something tantalizing to the well-educated film connoisseur as well as clearly giving informative insight into the craft for those who are new to film as a finely tuned art. Pair this one with De Palma and you have a wonderful evening of master suspense film-makers talking about what they do best.
