An interesting, in-depth dissection of the shower scene from the 1960 film, Psycho.
Hitchcock’s masterpiece in black and white has had numerous discussions. 78/52 is a movie from 2017 that analyzes and discusses this one violent, pivotal scene once again. 78 set ups and 52 cuts.
If you’re a true movie buff you know how different this movie was at the time. They spent seven days filming this singular shower scene. Unheard of on movie sets. Well, it had a big payoff.
You see footage from Hitch himself as well as many other modern movie makers. Comparisons to other movies then and now.
Interesting and well presented.
