Video: Subliminal Themes In Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho’

At the time of it’s release in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho was not warmly received by film critics, perhaps because it was too daring for the time. The consensus nowadays is that Psycho is a classic and cinematic art, and admired by just about every cinephile around the world. One of the film’s most essential features which has received the scantest of attention is the musical score by Bernard Herrmann. Rob Ager recently posted a very informative well thought analysis of Hermann’s masterpiece. Here is Ager’s interpretation of main theme to Psycho, which he argues has multiple personalities much like characters in the movie. If you enjoy the videos below, I highly recommend you head over to Ager’s website Collative Learning. Enjoy!
