Psycho: Up Close


Psycho: Up Close from Roman Holiday on Vimeo.

Here we are on week 2 of the new “Up Close” montage series. Today’s film choice is Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960). Ol’ Hitch certainly knew how to shoot some gorgeous close-ups.

I’d like to give a quick shout out to Psycho II and Psycho III which I’ve recently viewed and quite enjoyed. Even though the sequels came in over 20 years after the original they all come together in a pretty nice trilogy. Word’s still out on Psycho IV: The Beginning. Haven’t quite sought that one out yet.
