Raymond Durgnat:
A Long Hard Look at ´Psycho´ - new book

2010, ISBN: 9781844573585

ID: 133449642

U?pon its release in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock´s Psycho divided critical opinion, with several leading film critics condemning Hitchcock´s apparent encouragement of the audience´s identification with the gruesome murder that lies at the heart of the film. Such antipathy did little to harm Psycho´s box-office returns, and it would go on to be acknowledged as one of the greatest film thrillers, with scenes and characters that are among the most iconic in all cinema. In his illuminating study of Psycho, Raymond Durgnat provides a minute analysis of its unfolding narrative, enabling us to consider what happens to the viewer as he or she watches the film, and to think afresh about questions of spectatorship, Hollywood narrative codes, psycho-analysis, editing and shot composition. In his introduction to the new edition, Henry K. Miller presents A Long Hard Look at ´Psycho´ as the culmination of Durgnat´s decades-long campaign to correct what he called film studies´ ´Grand Error´. In the course of expounding Durgnat´s root-and-branch challenge to our inherited shibboleths about Hollywood cinema in general and Hitchcock in particular, Miller also describes the eclectic intellectual tradition to which Durgnat claimed allegiance. This band of amis inconnus, among them William Empson, Edgar Morin and Manny Farber, had at its head Durgnat´s mentor Thorold Dickinson. The book´s story begins in the early 1960s, when Dickinson made the long hard look the basis of his pioneering film course at the Slade School of Fine Art, and Psycho became one of its first objects.

In his introduction to the new edition, Henry K. Miller presents A Long Hard Look at Psycho as the culmination of Durgnat's decades-long campaign to correct what he called film studies' 'Grand Error', tracing the path of a project that began at the time of the film's release, and which drew on Durgnat's sense of kinship with its director, a fellow north-east Londoner. In the course of expounding Durgnat's root-and-branch challenge to our inherited shibboleths about Hollywood cinema in general and Hitchcock in particular - concepts like illusionism, character identification, scopophilia, and classical narrative - Miller also describes the eclectic intellectual tradition to which Durgnat claimed allegiance. This offbeat band of collaborators and 'amis inconnus', among them William Empson, Edgar Morin, and Manny Farber, had at its head Durgnat's mentor Thorold Dickinson. The book's story begins on the day in March 1962 when Dickinson took his cinephile seminar through Hitchcock's film shot-by-shot on an editing machine - the first long hard look of many. arts music and photography,direction and production,education and reference,film and television,genre films,guides and reviews,history and criticism,humanities,humor and entertainment,movies Movies, British Film Institute
