Feature length documentary on the making of "Psycho". It's mostly all talking heads with clips from the movie. It goes through every single aspect of the movie. Even the costumes are discussed in detail! The only actor left alive from the movie was Janet Leigh and she's most entertaining going into detail about working with Hitchcock and the movie. The most interesting of all was Patricia Hitchcock (Hitch's only child) who knew how her father and mother worked. Her insights were fascinating. However, all in all, I found this slow-moving and pretty dry. Sure some of the pieces were interesting but not continuously. Still, if you're a fan of the movie you'll probably love this. I also think this is the only footage we have of Leigh talking at length about the movie. So it's OK for maybe a one time viewing.
