Psycho: an ironic journey through Hitchcock's cinematic masterpiece

£7.99

Product description

Used, good condition, soft cover.
Psycho is a cinematic masterpiece yet it is sometimes difficult to understand why. After all, it really is just a story about a lovestruck girl who steals $40,000 so that she can begin a new life with her lover. Hasn't this story been told a million times before in novels and movies? For the real power of Psycho, you need to look beneath the language, behind the paintings, and into musty old bedrooms for clues to a deeper message. Psycho is multilayered and needs to be viewed time and time again in order to appreciate the deft irony that Hitchcock used to get into our subconscious minds. Come on this ironic journey and allow Hitchcock to take you off the main road and into those dark recesses of the mind where the real meaning of Psycho can be discovered.
There are a few marks to the front and back cover and a little wear to the corners and the edges of the cover. The spine is in good condition and the pages are all clean and unmarked.
