Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho
A complete reconstruction of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960) in print form—1300 frame blow ups (taken from the film itself), every scene, every piece of dialogue. This book is so effectively made, with a judicious simplicity, that makes it its own entity, separate from the film. Editor Richard J. Anobile notes that he selected Psycho as subject not only for its certainty as a future classic (he was right), but for its plot and process, as rendered by the director. It's a film full of red herrings, crazy tension, visual supremacy—all elements that translate beautifully into print. Secondhand paperback.
