Antagony & Ecstasy

What Van Sant's film does, tremendously well, is make the material foreign again.

Anton Bitel
Little White Lies

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."

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.

Deserves closer consideration than it received.

A lot of people may not get the point of recreating a work such as Psycho. I didn't get it, until I saw the film.

To my absolute astonishment, I enjoyed the remake more than the original.

It's surprising to note that this film, mostly well-acted, is somewhat lacking on the technical side, which is what Hollywood usually does best these days.

A Psycho that functions perfectly on its own terms while polishing this jewel of a thriller into its own bright new gleam.

Predictably, it's (almost) the exact same film, but I wouldn't say that it's a pointless enterprise.

Is this film better than the original? The answer is no, not quite, but to my shock, it is just about as good of a remake as could have possibly been expected.

Vaughn and Heche bring energy and freshness to the parts originated by Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. Heche is so good, in fact, and so frisky and watchable in her role, that after her grisly demise in the shower you miss her for a long time.

There's so much to relish here that you quickly lose any sense that the remake is some kind of insult to the original.

This gutsy cinematic experiment is more than just a curiosity. It's an intelligent homage (at times even a spoof) and still a bit of a hand-wringer, even though pop culture has spoiled all the surprises.

The one actor who stood out from the pack was definitely the rising star of the year, Vince Vaughn, who took Anthony Perkins' superb original performance, and added his own macabre touch of surrealism.

It remains the most structurally elegant and sneakily playful of thrillers!

Van Sant clearly knows that if it ain't broke, don't fix it, and his own smooth touch is neatly sympathetic with his predecessor's.

Maybe in 50 years, Gus Van Sant's Psycho will be the classic that needs protection from upstart filmmakers.
