This captivating documentary dives deep into Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho—“arguably the most revolutionary commercial movie ever made” (Variety). Its title referring to the 78 camera setups and 52 edits Hitchcock used to create Psycho’s infamous shower scene, 78/52 is fueled by countless captivating stories about and nuanced analysis of this iconic cinematic moment. Most of all, the movie captures the still-enthralling experience of watching Psycho, and how going to the movies has never been the same since. Insights are provided by people actually on the shower-scene set (Marli Renfro, Janet Leigh’s stand-in), noted directors (including Peter Bogdanovich, Guillermo del Toro, Karyn Kusama), editors (Walter Murch), composers (Danny Elfman), and actors (Elijah Wood, Jamie Lee Curtis, Oz Perkins). (91 mins., DCP)
