'Psycho' Path (1999)

*** (out of 4)

This here is an entertaining thirty-minute documentary that takes a look at the making of the 1998 remake of PSYCHO. Obviously, we start off hearing from some people who thought director Gus Van Sant was crazy for attempting to remake what is considered by many to be one of the greatest films ever made. We hear from people asking why they were doing it and then we hear from the director himself on why he wanted to. From here it's a behind-the-scenes tour of the set and features interviews with most of the main cast members including Vince Vaughn, Anne Heche, Philip Baker Hall, Viggo Mortensen, William H. Macy, Julianne Moore, Rita Wilson as well as other crew members.

For the most part this here is a fun documentary that asks the obvious questions but the highlight here is all of the behind-the-scenes footage. This includes the director and Vaughn going over what type of haircut Norman should have, what type of hat Macy should wear and there's even a selection of the shower curtain. Stuff like this was a lot of fun but at the same time it also makes it clear why the movie was so awful and that's because everyone was trying to make this better than the original or trying to pay homage and the end result was just downright bad.
