Psycho and the birds - all that is holy - The Relevance of Birds in Psycho (the film) - SweaNightingale


Putting blonds in peril was, of course, a career-long obsession for Alfred Hitchcock. Hedren and Leigh were merely two late-arriving additions to this already-bustling menagerie. Still, the parallels between the sequences in Psycho and The Birds are difficult to ignore. Notice, for instance, how the unnaturally bright light fixture in the Bates Motel bathroom corresponds to the unnaturally bright flashlight wielded by Hedren in The Birds . Notice, too, the nightmarish flurry of closeups: legs, hands, faces. During their respective attacks, both Hedren and Leigh are pinned up against walls, unable to escape from their shadowy assailants. Fernandez Eyre’s video ends with both bloodied, blonde heroines slumping to their respective floors, defeated. In a way, watching “Psycho Vs. The Birds” is like seeing how a magic trick is accomplished.

A wheelchair-bound photographer spies on his neighbours from his apartment window and becomes convinced one of them has committed murder.
