'78/52'

As in 78 individual shot set-ups and 52 edits – that's the raw data for Alfred Hitchcock's infamous shower scene in Psycho. What the portly old master did with that combination of celluloid snippets and some splicing tape, of course, is now the stuff of legend, and director Alexandre O. Philippe (The People vs. George Lucas) scrupulously breaks down the entire sequence shot by shot, as well as examining the sociological context surrounding Hitch's most notorious three minutes of filmmaking. We can practically hear film nerds moaning in ecstasy already.
