A brilliant documentary....
17 September 2001 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

Anyone still wonder why Gus Van Sant remade 'Psycho'??? Well this short documentary film directed by DJ who was allowed to document the making of 'Psycho' will answer that question and a whole lot more. The film also has many interviews with Van Sant, the cast, film theorists and other people who were involved with the original and the remake including Pat Hitchcock who gives the remake her blessing and support. All of them voice their opinion and ideas about this experimental film and as you may have guessed not all of the coments are positive.

If anything, this documentary isn't long enough and I find myself watching it over and over fascinated by all the opinions and ideas people had when 'Psycho' was being remade. It's so much more than a 'behind the scene's' documentary - it's more of a critical look at why Hollywood re-makes classic movies and how the new 'Psycho' is a firm example of the post-modern era we have entered in the last few years.

The documentary gives accurate comparisons between the original and the remake as well as showing subtle differences between the two films. 'Psycho Path' is available on the DVD of the 'Psycho' remake and it well worth a look. I bought the DVD just so I could have a copy of the documentary.

So anyone who's interested in film or the ideas behind one of the only movies of the 90's that had people scratching their heads as to why it was made - give this 30 minute film a look and then you will understand - "we all go a little made sometimes".
