  • ✪ Genius of Hitchcock's Shower Scene in 78/52 - Interview with Alexandre O. Philippe




Phillippe received a MFA in Dramatic Writing from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.[3] He has directed several narrative and documentary shorts, including Left, the Spot and Inside, which screened at over 70 international film festivals, and won several awards. Left, the Spot was the first film to have been recorded, edited and mixed at 192 kHz/24-bit for Dolby’s process of lossless encoding in TrueHD 5.1 surround sound technology, and was honoured by the Akira Kurosawa Foundation in Japan. The People vs. George Lucas was his third feature documentary, after Chick Flick (about Colorado’s own Mike the Headless Chicken) and Earthlings a quirky and stylish examination of the Klingon language phenomenon. He was also Second Unit Director on Dirk Simon’s When the Dragon Swallowed the Sun ), which premiered at the 2010 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, won three Movie Maverick Awards.

Phillippe's 2017 documentary 78/52 deconstructs the infamous shower scene from director Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.[4] Film critic Owen Gleiberman of Variety remarked "Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, who made the elegant and searching Doc of the Dead, 78/52 centers on an up-close analysis of the shower scene that’s at once delirious and definitive; the movie is also a cinematic meditation that features a wealth of terrific anecdotes about the creation of Hitchcock’s masterpiece."[5] The documentary features interviews with actors Elijah Wood and Jamie Lee Curtis (daughter of star Janet Leigh), Osgood Perkins (son of Anthony Perkins), directors Peter Bogdanovich, Guillermo del Toro, Eli Roth, Karyn Kusama, film editors Walter Murch, Chris Innis, Bob Murawski, and Marli Renfro (body double for Janet Leigh). The title refers to the number of set ups in the scene and the number of cuts, each one dissected and analyzed by film historians and enthusiasts.[2] Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times reviewed the film, expressing that it is "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."[6]
