      Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine A superfluous but tasty treat before the deep dish of Argento's upcoming conclusion to his Three Mothers Trilogy. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 13, 2006 Full Review Steve Biodrowski Cinefantastique With this unambitious but entertaining giallo, Dario Argento proves he can still thrill an audience. Apr 29, 2009 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a weak carbon copy that'll leave even the most passionate Argento follower wishing they had just watched the far superior originals. Rated: 2/4 Mar 1, 2009 Full Review Felix Gonzalez Jr. DVD Review With the film's taut suspense, witty humor, and alluring leading ladies, I'm sure Hitchcock would bestow his dry approval.

      Audience Member Giulio (Elio Germano) is a film student that frequents a video store and has an apartment filled with movie posters and yearns to discuss film with anyone he meets and no, I'm not triggered, why do you ask? One day at the store, he notices Federica Lalli (Chiara Conti) and Sasha Zerboni (Elisabetta Rocchetti) both try to rent Strangers On a Train. The next day, he reads that Sasha's rich mother has been killed, which he remarks to his girlfriend Arianna (Cristina Brondo) seems way to close to the plot of that Hitchcock film. He now feels like it's only a matter of time before Federica has to kill someone for Sasha, so he starts watching her. The only problem? She's watching him too. While watching Federica and her boss argue over him blackmailing her — just like Marnie –Guilio falls and breaks his ankle, which is an inversion of Rear Window. That night, Arianna comes over only to have to hear about a new theory: Federica is going to have Sasha to kill her boss. She leaves in anger. The plan is revealed when the video store owner visits our injured hero and tries to drown him. He's saved by his mother's new fiancee and the would-be killer runs into traffic before he's struck by a car. It turns out that Sasha had hired him to kill her mother. It should all be over but as Guilio and Arianna start to kiss, she's the one that notices something strange. This story is far from over because there's still a reference to Vertigo that needs to be made. Directed by Dario Argento, who co-wrote the script with Franco Ferrini (Phenomena, Opera, Eyes of Crystal, Dark Glasses), Do You Like Hitchcock? is a TV movie that takes a long time to get anywhere yet does have some moments worth watching. I loved the ending and the final but of voyeurism, as a woman realizes she's being watched and just turns her head and attention to the giallo novel she's reading. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Considering the quality off some of Argento's later works, I was pleasantly surprised at how watchable "Do You Like Hitchcock?" turned out. There are some brief flashes of the stylish director of old, but for the most part this film is mostly recommended for Argento completionists. 3 stars Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Dario Argento's later work is very sloppy and poor, but you can definitely see where he tried his hardest to make this film likable. The truth is: there isn't much likable about Do You Like Hitchcock? Although, a nice homage to Hitchcock thrillers, Do You Like Hitchcock? is a dull film that just exploits Hitchcock's best work. If this movie had more relatable characters and maybe didn't have a lack of pace and didn't have obvious twists, this may have been a decent movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the surprisingly watchable latter-day Argento films, and one that has something of a built in appeal for the movie nerd crowd. I enjoyed it pretty well, if only because you get a glimpse of an Italian video store, which was pretty cool. Rental? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member I would think Hitchcock would be pleased by such a stylish homage. Largely a by the numbers thriller with a fairly solid story. Beautifully shot in AH style, with a beautiful cast, it is flattery by sincere imitation. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I just love Hitchcock and this movie had an interesting storyline but I feel as it didn't come even close to the greatness it could have been. They tried and I feel in all honesty to my taste , they failed. Their could have been a better usage of all the Hitchcock movies but their were but a few.
