By all accounts, 78/52 is terrific (and a movie this writer is kicking himself for having missed at SXSW). A cinephile documentary of the highest order, Alexandre O. Phillippe dissects the iconic Marion Crane shower sequence from PSYCHO, frame by frame.
Phillippe’s doc combines detailed academic film analysis with critic, artist and fan interviews featuring such luminaries as Guillermo del Toro, Eli Roth, Jamie Lee Curtis, Peter Bogdonavich and Bret Easton Ellis. Now there’s a trailer for the IFC Midnight title, and it’s making us all hot and bothered to see the movie at Fantastic Fest in a few weeks.
