Perhaps there is not another scene so crucial for the history of the cinema as the shower sequence from Psycho, a masterpiece by Alfred Hitchcock from 1960. No matter how many times it has been referenced or parodied, when the sequence is reviewed more than half a century after the premiere, it still has its special power to terrify people to death. 78/52 is its deconstruction carried out to the smallest detail. This deeply cinephile investigation will delight any cinema lover, not just the fans of Hitchcock's rich body of work.
