One mark of a classic is whether it feels new after you know its twist and turns. Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 landmark Psycho qualifies. Now that Bates Motel and “shower scene” have entered the vocabulary of pop culture, not to mention the jabbing high-pitched violins of Bernard Herrmann’s score, we can relax and perceive that the dialogues between Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins during the first half hour remain some of the most grown-up and sympathetic conversations between a man and woman in film history. And then the horror starts. The McNay revives the iconic thriller as part of its Dressed to Kill film series.
