Movies by Alfred Hitchcock are always well done, Psycho is known as one of his best.
In all of his movies there are many things that look like just normal everyday items. But
they really are placed there to say something. In the movie Psycho, every item is placed,
and every scene is perfectly setup to say something about someone. During the scene where
Marion and Norman are eating in the parlor, they are both almost placed within their
sourroundings. Many of the camera shots in the film are not just to give a good view of
all the action. They are done the way they are to make us seem like we are poking around
where we shouldn't be. This movie also had some excellent editing. In the quick shower
scene alone there were over 90 cuts.
Many of the actors in Psycho were actors from his weekly television show. He (Hitchcock)
did this to save both time and money. The acting in this movie was well done, but my
opinion is that some of Marion's expressions and the appearence that something is wrong
were just too aparent.
