In the thorough and entertaining 78/52, Alexandre O. Philippe devotes 90 minutes to dissecting the famous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO. Featuring luminaries such as Guillermo del Toro, Peter Bogdanovich, Danny Elfman, Bret Easton Ellis and Jamie Lee Curtis, the film breaks the scene down to explain why it works so well and to examine its monumental influence on everything that has come since. More than just a nerdy deconstruction, 78/52 is a highly engaging look at the fundamental building blocks of film.
