    Philippe's geekiness is infectious. His passion for film shines through most when he invites some of his interviewees-like horror nerd Elijah Wood and his friends-to watch the film on camera and comment on its foreshadowing and subtle motifs.

    Hitchcock's shower scene may never leave the pop culture of fear it helped create.

    Los Angeles Times
    October 19, 2017

    Obsessive but accessible, the deepest dive imaginable into one of the most celebrated scenes in movie history, the documentary "78/52" looks at a brief three minutes of cinema the way it's never been looked at before.

    Time Out

    Alexandre O. Philippe's close reading of the Psycho shower scene is as refreshingly fun and perceptive as his documentary's name (referring to Alfred Hitchcock's 78 camera setups and 52 edits over three violent minutes) is eggheaded and clinical.

    Essential viewing, even if you have to watch through your fingers.

    78/52 is an orgy for movie obsessives. It makes you see the familiar with fresh eyes.

    December 29, 2017

    78/52 is both a loving tribute to the work Hitchcock did as well as a sharp, enlightening lesson in what makes Psycho so special.

    Who doesn't remember where he was when Leigh shed black bra and slip, unwrapped a bar of complimentary Bates Motel soap, and washed away her sins? ... Unfortunately doc's scholarship feels sketchy, arbitrary.

    The calibre of interviewees and the level of their insights in Alexandre O. Philippe's film is on the distinctly variable side, closer to one of those I Love... nostalgia-fests that are used to pad out the television schedules than to something valuable.

    Call it a primer in film criticism and analysis, as well as a testament to Alfred Hitchcock's mastery of form...

    A fascinating look at the most fascinating moment in what is arguably the most fascinating movie in the Hitchcock catalog.

    Sunday Times (UK)

    That a sequence depicting voyeurism should have drawn such myopic scrutiny is an irony not lost on the film-makers. The documentary's dedication reads: "To mother." Very droll.
