The movie was great. There wasn't much to say I didn't like. Alfred Hitchcock outdid himself in this film. Alfred Hitchcock lived up to his name "the Master of Suspense." Psycho is a movie about a runaway girl named Marion Crane from Phoenix, Arizona who stole $40,000 (which equals to about $300,000 in today's money) or at least it appears to be at first. Marion is portrayed as a psycho since you hear voices as she's driving, and her interactions with the police and a used car salesman are strange and unusual; she is rushed and, quite frankly, seems a little paranoid.
She drives to a motel named "Bates Motel" and is murdered that same night. Why would you kill off the "protagonist" nearly 45 minutes into the film?
In Marion's room, there is a picture of a crane so it's symbolism on Marion's last name. As another point of symbolism, Norman Bates [what more can we say about Bates? Also your conclusion can restate some of your intro and connect elements from your body to the main idea.] like to stuff birds (his next film is called birds.) A private investigator is called to check on Marion since she was never heard from again.
Her sister, Lila Crane [who resembles Marion physically; one more layer of Hitchcock's obsession with "doubling" in this film] Marion's lover, Sam Loomis, go out to the same motel to investigate Since they haven't heard from the investigator that was hired to check on Marion. They find that Norman Bates murdered his mother, Norma Bates (Norman, Norma similar name) and he put her in the fruit cellar of the house. (Symbolism on fruity - not all there, both oars aren't in the water etc.). As Lila investigates, Sam is distracting Norman, after a brief conversation, it gets out of hand and Norman finds out that Lila was snooping through the house. After a terrifying scream, Norman pulls out a knife, the thing about this is he's wearing his mother's clothes as he is about to kill Lila. Luckily, Sam was behind him and held him off. I actually think Norman was the protagonist since you see Norman in a cell in the end with the mother's voice over saying "I'd never hurt that girl" and other things like that.
Like I said before, this was a great film. Hitchcock lived up to his name, and there was tons of symbolism in the film. If you haven't seen the film, I suggest you give it a watch. It will be worth it.
Edit 1-21-16: I feel like I rushed this post. I quickly googled an image of Psycho and gave a (very) brief description of the film. I feel as if I could've put more time into this post. Even though it's brief, I feel like it was straight to the point. no unnecessary details. Jason, this may be true; however, as it stands it is mostly recall/retell. What is your thesis or main point? Once you have established this you may use your plot points in support. What happens if you flip your conclusion and make it part of your intro. Why is this movie great? Does Hitchcock live up to his moniker "the Master of Suspense"?
