78/52 on DVD
Death by a thousand cuts
DOGWOOF is excited to announce that the bold, stylish and incisive new documentary 78/52 - the film which pulls back the curtain on one of cinema's greatest ever scenes - slashes its way onto DVD on 11th December 2017.
In 78 setups and 52 cuts, the deliriously choreographed two-minute shower sequence in Psycho ripped apart cinema's definition of horror. With a shocking combination of exploitation and high art, Alfred Hitchcock upended his own acclaimed narrative structure by violently killing off a heroine a third of the way through his film, without explanation, justification, or higher purpose. Psycho played out like a horrific prank, forcing audiences to recognize that even the most banal domestic spaces were now fair game for unspeakable mayhem.
