Shower the People

by Patrick on 11/23/2012

David Thomson offers a comprehensive study of the cinematic themes found within the 1960 horror film, "Psycho", as well as biographical anecdotes about director Alfred Hitchcock and the changing mood of filmgoers by the late 1950's which allowed for a movie with such altered expectations to be made at that time. Thomson uses the first half of his book to probe every intimate detail of the film with rich points-of-interest, before moving on to discussing other relevant films that followed in "Psycho"'s wake and analyzing characters and themes of Hitchcock films prior.
