Critic Reviews of "Psycho (1998)"Godfrey Cheshire VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Contains nothing to outrage or offend partisans of the original, yet neither does it stand to add much to their appreciation.Derek Adams Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Hitchcock probably wouldn't tell this story if he was making films today, and he certainly wouldn't tell it this way, with internal 'voices', back projection, minimal nudity and violence.Philip Wuntch Dallas Morning NewsJanuary 01, 2000
The film is polished when it should be edgy and impersonal when it should be seductive.Bob Fenster Arizona RepublicJanuary 01, 2000
A lot less scary!Stephen Hunter Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Van Sant has cranked up the realism about 20 points, but somehow what he achieves for the effort is a larger sense of banality!Janet Maslin New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It remains the most structurally elegant and sneakily playful of thrillers!Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema CrazedOctober 23, 2013
The cast is fantastic, sure, but they're wasted in a sea of redundancy.John A. Nesbit Old School ReviewsApril 25, 2013
failed projectTim Brayton Antagony & EcstasyDecember 01, 2012
What Van Sant's film does, tremendously well, is make the material foreign again.Anton Bitel Little White LiesOctober 22, 2012
a true labour of love, an homage in such deliriously infatuated thrall to its inspiration that it seems more arthouse folly than studio cashcow - or, to cite the psychiatrist near the end of Psycho, "these were crimes of passion, not profit."Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.ComAugust 07, 2012
A futile, soulless shot-by-shot remake of Hitchcock's masterpiece.Rob Nelson City Pages, Minneapolis/St. PaulAugust 21, 2009
Already my mother and I mourn the day when some AVID editor will dare to digitally tweak Vertigo, spinning it into a virtual romantic comedy starring computer-directed replicas of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
