It killed its star off after forty minutes. There was no happy ending. And it offered the most violent scene to date in American film. The shrieking strings of the soundtrack seared the national consciousness--nothing likePsychohad existed before.Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of Hollywood, renowned film critic David Thomson vividly shows how, in 1959, Hitchcock masterfully madePsychoto reflect the sexual, creative, and political ferment that would soon overtake the nation.Psycho, all of a sudden, represented all America wanted from a film--and, asThe Moment of Psychobrilliantly demonstrates, it still does.

David Thomson, author of“Have You Seen . . . ?”andThe New Biographical Dictionary of Film, is a regular contributor toThe Guardian,The Independent, The New York Times, Movieline, The New Republic,andSalon.He lives in San Francisco. From the Hardcover edition.
