Film Forum Presents: HITCHCOCK’S ‘50s

November 10 - 16, 2023 - TBD

Hitchcock allows the audience to become a subjective character within the plot in Psycho to enhance the film’s psychological effects for an audience that is forced to recognize its own neurosis and psychological inadequacies as it is compelled to identify, for varying lengths of time, with the film’s main characters’ contrasting personalities. Hitchcock’s Psycho has been praised for serving as the archetypal foundation for all horror films that followed its premiere in 1960. The universality of Psycho’s appeal has undoubtedly contributed to its long-lasting popularity.
