Synopsis

It was the early sixties when the master of suspense let the star of his new movie die barely forty minutes into the film, in a scene that would turn cinema upside down. Alexandre O. Philippe, an unrepentant movie buff, dissects those 52 shots from Psycho, which marked a dramatic narrative effect and was admiration of brutality turned suggestion.
