Introducing Norman Bates

Feature

Friday, June 11, 2010

Throughout the 1950s, reports of sex crime and pathological murder rattled America. "Psycho" both exploits and "explains" one such murder, with a rather heavy-handed psychiatrist. But beyond the screeching violins and the risque shower scene, the movie's real legacy is that Hitchcock makes us care so much about a deranged killer. Produced by WNYC's Sarah Montague.
