description

57 years after its initial release shocked an entire generation of unsuspecting moviegoers, PSYCHO remains one of the most intensely discussed and analyzed movies of all time. Beyond the movie itself, the infamous shower scene has undoubtedly emerged as the single most iconic and significant scene in the history of motion picture arts and sciences. Referencing the number of set-ups (78) and the number of cuts (52) in the shower scene, 78/52 explores the cinematic space between the shots, and offers an unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO, and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema.
