★★★½ review by Caitlin on Letterboxd
this was Good and the director was there which was Cool and he did a q&a afterwards and that was Nice but enough is enough. I must speak my truth. I would like to know what business Norman Bates had being that hot

★★★½ review by Aaron Hendrix on Letterboxd
It was not a time for technicolor anymore
Alexandre O. Phillipe's reverent documentary on the iconic shower scene is certainly an interesting watch, especially if you love - or even just appreciate - Hitchcock. It doesn't necessarily say anything revolutionary about the film, but it's worth seeing if you're at all interested in the subject matter.
Full review coming to Talk Film Society this Thursday.
I give it a 3.5/5.
★★★★ review by Ben Scanga on Letterboxd
Hot Docs #22
It's like that documentary that came out about random people's deeper thoughts on Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, but this time around it's critically acclaimed and mainstream filmmakers heavily analyzing the shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. If that sounds entertaining to you then check it out, if not then don't see it...
There really ain't much to say about this one
★★★★½ review by Andrew James on Letterboxd
This fascinating and compelling doc takes about 4/5 of its running time to analyze a clip of film that is only about 3 minutes long. But that 3 minutes is truly a work of artistry from so many people and has so much to say.
It's fascinating learning about from the players in the scene, other horror directors and even just fans of film (Elijah Wood for example). Everyone always has something interesting to say or point out - even the guy who keeps dogging on certain scenes or moments in the film.
This was really great and will force you to want to watch the classic Psycho immediately after... and then maybe even come back and watch this a second time!
