    ★★★½

    An interesting look at Psycho and it's most famous scene (the title refers to the amount of shots and set-ups in the famous Janet Leigh shower-scene). However, it was actually much more about the film itself, and the impact it had, than I was anticipating. Granted, there's a lot about the shower-scene - breaking it down, discussing the editing, story-boarding, and the iconic score, but there was a lot of insight into the film itself.

This movie always makes me emotional - and that's because of the underlying themes of mental illness and generally feeling like you don't belong. I feel the message of 'it's ok to be afraid- just don't let it change who you are' is powerful, sincere and more important now than ever! All around an amazing, visually stunning film
