During my senior year in high school, I complied a list of things that I wish I knew. I also asked several of my friends what they wish they knew. This list consists of what I feel were the most important lessons learned by a bunch of 18 year olds during their time as youths.
Alfred Hitchcock was a trendsetting director, to say the least. He constantly pushed the boundaries of the thriller/horror genre. In the 1960s film, Psycho, he especially pushed these limits as, by this time, he has perfected his uniquely masterful directorial style that he has been since the 1930s. With this film, Hitchcock redefines horror and shifts it from the universal monster movies to something much more terrifying, exploration of the self. He does this by weaving elements of Freudian psychoanalysis and a clever use of the camera.
