Pitch for Research Project

I think I’m going to write my paper on Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.  For it’s time, I thought it was an amazing movie and Hitchcock is definitely the original man of horror.  There are so many elements of the film that are debatable, especially when it comes to psychoanalysis.   The whole reason for the title Psycho was due to the mental illness that Norman Bates was suffering from, which has so much to do with psychoanalysis.  There also seem to be specific gender roles assigned which is also up for speculation.  Out of all of the recommended films, this seemed to be the one that I was most familiar with.  I figured, why not do more research into something that I already enjoyed and thought was really innovative?
