78/52: HITCHCOCK'S SHOWER SCENE

78/52: HITCHCOCK'S SHOWER SCENE

ALEXANDRE O. PHILLIPPE · USA · 2017 · 91 mins · NOT RATED
IMDBRotten Tomatoes

If you love “Psycho,” love Hitchcock, hell, if you love cinema, then “78/52” will feel like nothing so much as a cherished gift. Alexandre O. Philippe (“The People vs. George Lucas”) spends ninety minutes dissecting a two-minute scene, and in doing so reveals the depth of Hitchcock’s genius in a way a much broader discussion likely couldn’t.

The scene in question, of course, is Psycho’s shower scene. "78/52" refers to the number of camera setups and cuts in this two-minute scene, two minutes that changed cinema forever. “78/52” lovingly examines this scene from every angle: the narrative psychology behind it, the technical approach, Hitchcock’s own brilliance and pathology, the scene’s incomparable influence on future films and television shows and even the rating system. We hear from everyone from Janet Leigh’s body double Marli Renfro to Jamie Lee Curtis. Horror luminaries like Guillermo del Toro, Karyn Kusama and Neil Marshall all weigh in. --Birth. Movies. Death

“ESSENTIAL VIEWING!” --Toronto Star
