Hitchcock's famous shower scene

I watched something very interesting indeed on tv last night, although I don't feel I can give it the full review it warrants. 78/52 is an examination of Hitchcock's famous shower scene from psycho. It'sa ninety minute dissection of a single moment in film, and as such for me it harks straight back to my work on cinephilia and cinephiliac moments. The program goes through the scene cut by cut, line by screenplay line, bringing in all kinds of experts to talk about it (although, curiously, no Zizek and no mention of Lacan). It thus struck me as quintessentially a work of cinephilia, as it explored almost everything about the scene in minute detail. It was great to watch and made me want to dig out my Hitchcock DVD collection and books. Proper film analysis on mainstream tv is quite rare, and, although there wasn't much in terms of the stuff we covered in our second year at uni, it was great to see film being taken seriously for once.
