I enjoy Anthony Perkins’ performance more and more with every viewing of this movie.

And it wasn’t until I saw this on the big screen that I really felt how uncomfortable this scene gets.  The fact that there is no score really heightens the tension…

And something I noticed tonight is that when Norman leans forward and describes the madhouse, etc., he barely blinks….which is such a contrast to his normal fidgety movements.

Perkins is BRILLIANT right here.

This scene is actually one of my favorites in the movie. No score, no fancy cinematography– just two actors, low camera placement, and great, understated creepiness. The fact that he’s got all these stuffed birds around the room and then he compares Marion to one is both hilarious and ominous all at once.

You know what I think? I think that we’re all in our private traps, clamped in them, and none of us can ever get out. We scratch and we claw, but only at the air, only at each other, and for all of it, we never budge an inch.
Psycho (1960) dir. Alfred Hitchcock
