Douglas Gordon - 24-hour Psycho (1993)
"The work consists entirely of an appropriation of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 Psycho slowed down to approximately two frames a second, rather than the usual 24. As a result it lasts for exactly 24 hours, rather than the original 109 minutes.
The film was an important work in Gordon’s early career, and is said to introduce themes common to his work, such as recognition and repetition, time and memory, complicity and duplicity, authorship and authenticity, darkness and light.”
i don’t often drop the “if, then we can’t be friends” maxim, but if you don’t think this is one of the greatest moments in cinematic history we can’t be friends

I have just seen the film Lifeboat, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and billed as written by me. While in many ways the film is excellent there are one or two complaints I would like to make. While it is certainly true that I wrote a script for Lifeboat, it is not true that in that script as in the film there were any slurs against organized labor nor was there a stock comedy Negro. On the contrary there was an intelligent and thoughtful seaman who knew realistically what he was about. And instead of the usual colored travesty of the half comic and half pathetic Negro there was a Negro of dignity, purpose and personality. Since this film occurs over my name, it is painful to me that these strange, sly obliquities should be ascribed to me."
John Steinbeck wrote this letter to 20th Century Fox in 1944! (via roscoemcnally)
Hollywood has been doing this for a long time.
Hey good on John Steinbeck for calling that shit out.
John Steinbeck who also toned down his accounts of worker abuse in The Grapes Of Wrath because it was so bad he thought people wouldn’t believe it.
i like john steinbeck
