78/52

78/52 ★★★½

"Mom is going to be the death of us all."

This is a documentary about the film Psycho, with special emphasis on the iconic shower scene and all of the work that went into its creation. An all star cast of directors, editors, actors and critics give their insight and interpretations of the film. There are a lot of great edits of repeating patterns in the film.

I honestly don't know if this is a good depth of information because I didn't know a ton about the film Pscyho. I feel like a learned a lot but also really enjoyed hearing what a number of people in the industry think about Psycho.

Artistically, the film is a pretty standard talking head style documentary. Also, 78/52 is all in black and white which I kind of find lame. This is a recommend for people interested in Psycho, Hitchcock, or general film analysis.
