Around the remote: ‘Hitchcock/Truffaut’ explores historic summit

By Chuck Barney Tribune News Service

DON’T MISS: “Hitchcock/Truffaut” – In 1962, French New Wave auteur Frangois Truffaut spent a week in Hollywood with his idol, Alfred Hitchcock, discussing the director’s rich and extensive body of work, including “Psycho” and “Vertigo.” Their exchanges were distilled into a book that became a celebrated bible of cinema. This documentary brings the historic summit to life, while blending in fresh observations from current filmmakers. 9 p.m. Monday, HBO.
