A Boy's Best Friend!
The Encore Suspense channel ran a peculiar marathon for Mother's Day yesterday. They ran in continuous cycle the classic Hitchcock thriller Psycho.
As it turns out, I've never ever seen Psycho all the way through, so I settled in and remedied that oversight. I found a movie which was in some ways less and in some ways more lurid than I expected. The violence is so understated by modern standards that it hardly exists, but the understated sexual elements are much more pronounced than I realized.
All in all I found the movie completely enthralling. A new Mother's Day tradition is begun I suspect. Now just don't tell my mother.
