One of my favorite films of all time. A brilliantly constructed mystery combined with Hitch's signature minimal style. There is no real gore, and that's part of the appeal. It's mosly left up to the audience's imaginations.
-La estructura es perfecta. A través de pequeñas pistas uno se marea y Hitchcock nos hace perdernos
-La explicación psiquiátrica del final me parece concluyente y convincente
-Llama la atención la frialdad de los familiares al enterarse que la hermana está muerta
-Muy buena música, comenzando por la obertura y en la construcción de tensión
-Buenas actuaciones, pero ninguna tan central y carismática como en en otras películas de Hitchcock
-Los pájaros nuevamente como presagio de sucesos negativos
Few films have a recognizable legacy as Psycho does, and while that is fine in one context, it can be a curse in another. Especially for a film that was made with the ignorance of its audience in mind. It’s very difficult to go into Psycho completely blind, unless you were raised under a rock all your life, and the sheer number of sequels, prequels, and that universally panned Gus Van Sant remake have made it even harder. But that’s…
My favorite horror movie of all time.
"I wouldn't hurt a fly."
All my life I've been saying that "my favorite film is Saving Private Ryan, and no film can surpass it." Until today. Psycho is my favorite movie of all time, I've seen: Raging Bull, The Godfather, The Pianist and even Pulp Fiction and still, I couldn't find a movie that has impacted me as much as 'Saving Private Ryan'. I literary just saw this movie, I've been trying to watch it for about 3…
OK, so I guess I'm that insane guy who isn't totally wowed by Vertigo and Psycho. I do really admire the audacity to kill off the top-billed cast member midway through the movie, but it doesn't really serve the story that well.
The reason I don't like Psycho and Vertigo that much is that I don't love any of their characters. All of my favorite Hitchcocks (Rear Window, The Birds, Marnie, Lifeboat, Shadow of a Doubt) feature characters I love.…
Wonderful to see on the big screen in 35mm print.
Love the opening titles.
Bernard Herrmann's score is a real piece of genius. I love it in its quieter moments even more than the famous parts, like the shower sequence.
Janet Leigh drips with sensuality and exudes sexuality.
Anthony Perkins gives a once in a lifetime performance. He was so great that people could hardly imagine him doing anything else.
The only false note for me is the police station…
Pop culture ruined this movie for me.
Despite some clunky elements towards the end, Psycho's transgressive daring still holds up an impressive 50 plus years after its release.
An undisputed classic, and rightfully so. All I really knew about one of Alfred Hitchcock's most famous films, was the infamous shower scene. It's one of those moments in cinema history that everyone knows about, even if they have no idea what the film is about, who stars in it, or even who directed it.
I'd heard little things about the film here and there over the years, but not much else, so for the majority of the film I…
