Dir Alexandre O Philippe. 91min. Digital. Cert tbc. Courtesy of Dogwoof This in-depth documentary will be a delight for die-hard Hitchcock fans and filmmakers No other scene in the history of cinema has had a more seismic effect than ‘the shower scene’ in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. 78/52 (the title refers to the number of set-ups and shots in the scene) devotes 90 minutes to analysing, breaking down and interpreting this influential three-minute scene. Screened at the BFI London Film Festival, 78/52 delves deep into understanding the craft and impact of this scene that so influenced cinema. Anna Bogutskaya, Events Programmer *A director Q&A follows the screening on Fri 27 Oct at 18:10 in NFT3 OPENS FRI 27 OCT Psycho USA 1960. Dir Alfred Hitchcock. With Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Martin Balsam, Vera Miles. 109min. Digital. 15 The manipulative, virtuoso brilliance of Hitchcock’s foray into Grand Guignol remains undimmed. He relocated horror to a recognisably contemporary America, while upping the ante in shocks and surprises. If few are now unaware of what befalls Marion Crane at the Bates Motel, the film boasts more than enough richly nuanced details to keep us constantly amused, intrigued and pleasingly ill at ease.
