"I recently read in the book My Stroke of Insight by brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor that the natural life span of an emotion—the average time it takes for it to move through the nervous system and body—is only a minute and a half. After that we need thoughts to keep the emotion rolling. So if we wonder why we lock into painful emotional states like anxiety, depression, or rage, we need look no further than our own endless stream of inner dialogue." ~ True Refuge - Tara Brach


Peeping Tom - Hollywood exiled Michael Powell after this wonderful film but it remains a stunning study of a very disturbed mind.


Peeping Tom (1960). Not sure if this was before or after Psycho, but it certainly seems like it was influenced by it. I really liked the lead actor, Carl Boehm. Probably worth checking out. Thumbs up.
