Psycho ★★★★★

"We all go a little mad sometimes."

Psycho is just perfect all around. Alfred Hitchcock's own direction misleads viewers with each movement. He distracts us with side characters and clever hints in the dialogue. Bernard Herrmann's iconic score sets the tone for each scene with its loud stabs and haunting crescendos. The camera work is lovely with long panning shots of environments, steady cam shots of people, zoom in shots, bird's eye view, reflections in mirrors and a number of other brilliant diversions courtesy of Alfred Hitchcock's mind. Psycho is not only beautifully filmed, but fascinating to look at in its dreary locations and creepy sets.
