Why would anyone remake Psycho? According to Roger Ebert's 1998 review, "Curious, how similar the new version is, and how different. If you have seen Hitchcock's film, you already know the characters, the dialogue, the camera angles, the surprises." Not only an experiment in filmmaking, but also in terror, Van Sant makes the story's sexuality more explicit than the original could be under the 1960 production code. With the assistance of Wong Kar-wai's primary cinematographer, Christopher Doyle, he also changes the look of the film from high-contrast black-and-white to a brilliantly garish color palette uncommon to such dark narrative material. With Vince Vaughn, Anne Heche, Viggo Mortensen, Julianne Moore, William H. Macy, and Robert Forester. 1998, U.S., color, 35mm, 104 minutes.
