Psycho (1960)


Psycho will rid you of any ideas that old movies are stodgy and dull. It’s a very juicy thriller from the jump: Janet Leigh’s Marion Crane is a good girl gone bad who steals from her boozy boss to flee across the Arizona desert to the arms of her deadbeat boyfriend. Then she meets the psycho of the title.

Yes, the expository ending is a letdown, but it speeds along until the final moments. Consider that when Psycho came out, many people didn’t know what a psycho was.

Psycho made sure they didn’t forget.
