    Céline and Julie Go Boating

    ★★★★½

    "My mother... what is the phrase? She isn't quite herself today."

    Each and every aspect of Psycho seems to be perfect. The attention to detail is stunning. Psycho feels like a combination of all Hitchcock's formidable talents rolled into one incredible film. Even though I'd seen this one before, and knew exactly what was going to happen, the atmosphere was still as tense as ever. Psycho is on a different level compared to…
