As part of their tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, the Lone Star Film Society will present Psycho. In 1960, Alfred Hitchcock was already famous as the screen's Master of Suspense (and perhaps the best-known film director in the world) when he released Psycho and forever changed the shape and tone of the screen thriller.
From its first scene, in which an unmarried couple balances pleasure and guilt in a lunchtime liaison in a cheap hotel (hardly a common moment in a major studio film in 1960), Psycho announced that it was taking the audience to places it had never been before.
The Lone Star Film Society’s ArthouseFW and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth finish out the summer with an exciting series showcasing six pivotal Alfred Hitchcock films. The selected films explore the power of Hitchcock’s distinctive style in two of his nine silent films and four of his later masterpieces.
