I for the life of me can't understand how this has gotten such a high rating. Unless you're someone who has the time and stamina to micro analys a film inch by painful inch, you're going to find this redundant and boring.My wife fell asleep first and then I turned it off and joined her.

An unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" (1960), the "man behind the curtain", and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema.
While it might seem like quite a feat to devote 90 minutes of coverage to a one-minute segment of a film, this documentary pulls it off. By exploring every possible angle -- the sounds, the editing, the casting -- we see just how much went into getting the notorious shower scene just right. Most interesting is how many clues are in the film leading up to this moment that may not be obvious, but were sprinkled there by Hitchcock with a knowing wink.
"78/52" is playing on July 20, 2017 at the Fantasia International Film Festival. In this golden age of documentaries, this film still stands out as the cream of the crop.
As the story goes - In 1960's "Psycho" - It took director, Alfred Hitchcock (and his film crew) 78 camera set ups and 52 edits in order to capture just one particular 3-minute scene in the movie.
And, this, of course, was the now-famous "shower scene" where deranged transvestite, Norman Bates sliced and diced the naked and vulnerable Marion Crane (while strains of Bernard Herrmann's music-score screeched out at the top of its lungs).
Now - Nearly 60 years later - This documentary takes a microscopic look at this one praised and heralded slasher scene. And through interviews with various people, it completely dissects this sequence so that no stone is left unturned.
According to those who voiced their opinions in 78/52 - The overall execution of this one murder scene (though tame by today's "in-your-face" standards) has had a significant impact on all slasher films ever since.
Anyway - I found that 78/52 had both its fair share of good moments, as well as its not-so-good moments, too.
