Scorsese’s Hitchcock’s The Key to Reserva

For the greatest advertising campaign ever conceived, Catalan winery Freixenet hired Martin Scorsese to direct a (fictional) lost 3.5 page script for Hitchcock.

“I’m obviously not going to shoot them as I would. But can I shoot them as Hitchcock? I don’t think so.  So who will I shoot them as? This is the question.”

The result is a perfectly observed Hitchcockian pastiche. Enjoy!

    Loved this one. At first I was paying close attention to the details of filming, but by the end found myself actually caught up in the tension. :)

    Hmm.. I think it’s time I catch another Hitchcock flick. Yeesh. I just checked imdb and I still have a lot of his movies (mostly older) to check off the list. But I’ve seen 37 of his movies so far, which sounds pretty good to me.

    Wow, 37 is a ton! I think the most movies I’ve seen by a single director is 20 or so (De Palma naturally).

    That is awesome! The film within the film really felt like Hitchcock, especially the camera work.

    Makes me want to see Scorcese do a whole film this way. That music is great.
