Infamous for its shower scene, but immortal for its contribution to the horror genre. Initially, the film divided critics, but audience interest and outstanding box-office returns prompted a major critical re-evaluation. It was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Director for Hitchcock and Best Supporting Actress for Leigh. PSYCHO is now considered one of Hitchcock’s best films, and is arguably his most famous and influential work. It has been hailed as a major work of cinematic art for its slick direction, tense atmosphere, impressive camerawork, memorable score and iconic performances. Often ranked among the greatest films of all time, it set a new level of acceptability for violence, deviant behavior and sexuality in American films.
