Alexandre O. Philippe

USA / 2017 / 91 minutes / DCP / B&W

The shower scene! Three minutes, that’s all it takes to shock the world and still haunt us today. Alexandre O. Philippe takes an unprecedented look at the iconic moment in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960), dissecting the MacGuffin DNA in the 78 setups and 52 cuts used in the shower scene. Film directors, actors and editors discuss the shockmaster’s revolutionary use of film technique, and how he changed cinema’s relationship with sex and violence. An expert autopsy on a genius work that wields a massive impact on film culture.
