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.
