Psycho (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on March 29, 2007

I forgot how fucking good this movie is, perhaps because it’s so iconic and ingrained in our popular culture that I began to dismiss it.  The tension builds beautifully, the scares are potent (although admittedly a bit less so after several viewings) and Anthony Perkins gives a dynamite performance.  The obvious low point is the psychobabble at the end, which really is quite lamentable, but otherwise it’s practically flawless with so many brilliant touches.  Rating: 9
