    Un film che ha fatto il suo tempo. Sicuramente da ricordare per la scena dell'omicidio sotto la doccia e per la colonna sonora.

    Now that the semester is finished, I just wanted to share the close analysis I did in my intro to cinema studies class...

    The horrors of cleanliness. Norman Bates' futile attempts scrubbing his mind of maternal instinct translates into an antisepticised ecosystem of a forgotten motel property. Marion Crane's arrival at the Bates Motel, amidst her inability cleaning up her own life, takes Norman from clean thoughts, clean rooms, and clean sheets to a world of clean knife cuts, and cleaning a bathroom of spilled blood and a dead body. Norman's inability to cleanse all physical evidence of Marion Crane's brief, carnal existence…
