9780826427694: Psycho in the Shower: The History of Cinema's Most Famous Scene
Review:

"Wearing its scholarship lightly and revealing unashamedly the author's enthusiasm, even affection, for his subject, this book illuminates and refreshes what had risked becoming a stale debate." John Baxter, Film International"

From the Publisher:

This is a brilliant study of one scene in one movie: the shower scene from "Psycho". Every other chapter is an extended interview with someone who either worked on the original film or Gus van Sant's 1998 remake. The non-interview chapters take various approaches to film criticismand the end result is very entertaining."Psycho in the Shower" is a multi-dimensional study of the film's astonishing shower scene. Philip J. Skerry shows how it may be the most significant and influential scene of all and substantiates this claim by providing chapters on the evolution of the scene in Hitchcock's career, with particular focus on his methods for creating suspense and terror in the audience. In tracing the evolution of the shower scene, the author discusses and analyzes many films (both Hitchcockian and otherwise) that lead up to "Psycho".The book places the shower scene in the cultural and social contexts of American popular culture of the 1950s and 1960s, arguing that it helped to create a revolution in both sensibility and cinematic style. Several unique dimensions help to set this study apart from other books on "Psycho" and Hitchcock: extensive and detailed interviews with people who worked on the film, including star Janet Leigh and screenwriter Joseph Stefano (the last significant interviews before their deaths); a close study of Hitchcock's employment of mise en scene and montage in the scenes leading up to the famous shower murder; a shot by shot analysis of the scene itself and a discussion of the numerous controversies surrounding it; and a provocative and insightful account of the writing of the book itself, which provides a unique look at the author's creative process.The book culminates with examples of how the shower scene has become embedded in the matrix of contemporary culture and the remarkable ways in which the scene affected people on first viewing.

Descripción Bloomsbury Academic, 2009. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is a brilliant study of one scene in one movie: the shower scene from Psycho. Every other chapter is an extended interview with someone who worked on the original film, or on Gus van Sant's remake from a few years ago. The non-interview chapters take various approaches to film criticism, and refer often to the author and his writing of this book. It's lightly done, but compelling and often very entertaining. >.
