Quote from: The Verge
On his website, Extension 765, Soderbergh has combined Alfred Hitchcock's and Gus Van Sant's versions of Psycho into a single film, which he's titled Psychos. Van Sant's 1998 remake has largely been converted into black-and-white, and since it covers Hitchcock's film nearly shot-for-shot, Soderbergh is able to quite seamlessly cut between the two films to create one that's just a bit different from moment to moment

That's just stupid.

[Edit to clarify] Here's what I don't like about that (note I didn't watch the whole thing): Since the remake was filmed shot by shot, all he's done is replace scenes from the original with scenes from the remake (or vice versa, depending on how you look at it). Now, one may make the argument that choosing which version to insert where makes some kind of artistic statement, but to me it's just lazy one for one substitution. It's the equivalent of me taking two singers' versions of White Christmas in the exact same arrangement, splicing every other line together, and calling it a mashup.

I watched it up to the point where the detective visit Bates Motel and I'm pretty much 'meh' about the reinterpretation.  Hitchcock's movie is a classic for a reason that the 98 remake never had
