Today I Watched: Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960)

Psycho (dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 1960)

“I don’t care about the subject matter; I don’t care about the acting; but I do care about the pieces of film and the photography and the soundtrack and all of the technical ingredients that made the audience scream. I feel it’s tremendously satisfying for us to be able to use the cinematic art to achieve something of a mass emotion. And with Psycho we most definitely achieved this. It wasn’t a message that stirred the audiences, nor was it a great performance or their enjoyment of the novel. They were aroused by pure film.” —Alfred Hitchcock

Score: 9½ to 10− out of 10.
