Critic Reviews:

While I’m never going to consider it a “good” movie, I’m strangely glad that director Gus Van Sant’s shot-for-shot 1998 remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho exists.

As a film, this is embarrassing. I feel bad for everyone involved in it and I just don’t understand why this was made and who thought it’d be a good idea.

Many have argued that Gus Van Sant (who is a talented filmmaker) wasn’t really going out to remake Psycho but was studying the idea of a shot for shot remake. If this is the case, he succeeded, but he also succeeded in showing how much better Hitchcock was.
