Today Steven Soderbergh, the man behind the lens of films such as Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s Eleven and Behind the Candelabra, released a new version of Hitchcock’s Psycho, editing it alongside the 1998 shot-for-shot remake from Gus Van Sant.
The remake seemed like a needless addition to the film’s legacy at the time, but Soderbergh’s concept to then recut the two films together, gives the concept a new life. Even more so, considering that last year Soderbergh retired from directing. This was such a great loss to the industry, that it makes it all the more fantastic to see that he’s still creating.
