Psycho a Go-Go

Psycho a Go-Go ★★½

Directors Spotlight: Al Adamson

Al Adamson's debut feature is a surprisingly decent crime thriller about a heist gone wrong and a group of criminals ready to do anything to get the stolen jewelry back. While the movie as a whole is not particularly remarkable, it has that gritty early New Hollywood vibe, courtesy of the beautiful cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond, as well as a great opening heist scene which I really liked. Overall, Psycho a Go-Go is probably better than the average Al Adamson film and delivers what it sets out to do, but it doesn't really manage to be anything beyond a bland but serviceable flick.
