A friend has nominated me to name my top 10 films.
“Psycho” is my first film
Anyone who wants to learn how to make a movie, must follow this movie.
It entices you to follow the story of a pretty women, Janet Leigh, as she goes through with her scenes — the bank, the police, getting a room at the motel, for a unfortune, grisly ending. Then the movie is only about half done.
And what is going on with the Mother? The Oedipus complex … the man’s cowardice … his homonormative nature … So much to explore in thiese characters.
And you can’t avoid The Shower. The scene is one of the leading movie scenes, right along with Dorothy’s cheers of Toto from the witch’s castle, Darth Vaper declaring his paternity, and Leo DiCaprio declaring he was king of the world.
With my stroke head, some things I remember about “Psycho”:
- The blood is Bosco chocolate syrup.
- The Catholic Church gave the film “a morally objectional” rating.
- Amid all the bird motif Janet Leigh’s name in the script is Marion Crane and she’s from Phoenix.
I’ve been nominated by Jane Burns to post photos from my 10 favorite films. It a hard task. And I’ll explain what I made those picks.
