Great Scenes: “Psycho”

After stealing $40,000, Marion attempts to leave town. She imagines how the conversation between her boss and the rich businessman would play after they discover her misdeed. I love how at first she seems worried, even scared, but then a creepy smirk curves her face. It’s almost like she intentionally throws a disgusting insult her way to villainize the businessman in her mind. The smirk is very subtle, and for the briefest of moments, it feels like Marion is the antagonist.
