Rob Ager nimmt Filme im Detail auseinander. Oben als Beispiel der erste Teil seiner Analyse von Hitchcocks Psycho, sehr viele weitere Clips gibt's auf seiner Website mit Analysen von A Clockwork Orange, Aliens, Big Lebowski, ET, Full Metal Jacket, Hellraiser, Pulp Fiction, Shining, 2001, Taxi Driver und anderen. Auf der Website gibt's die Analysen auch als Transkript, aus seinem Schizo-Text zu Psycho:

The central theme, as displayed by Norman Bates’ schizoid personality switching, is the concept of multiple identity or role play. In Norman’s case the psychological need to inhabit multiple roles in life is explained at the end of the film by a psychiatrist at the police station. Hitchcock handed this information to us on a plate like giving out candy to children so that we would walk away thinking we knew what the story was about. What isn’t told to us directly, but is demonstrated through images and subtext, is that the other characters of the story are also living out schizoid realities. Each of the main characters inhabits their own psychological narrative, while occasionally shifting identity to play out the role of someone else. In many instances the characters actually double for each other.

Take Marion Crane for example. Her reality is fractured and broken from the outset. She plays the role of a humble secretary, yet switches into a secretive and less than respectable girl during lunch break rendezvous with her lover Sam. It is also established that, just like Norman Bates, her relationship with her Mother is double-natured. She talks of wanting to introduce Sam to her Mother by having a respectable dinner. Sam replies “And after the steak? Do we send sister to the movies and turn mommas picture to the walls?” Bates has the same problem introducing sexual partners to his mother. Later, Marion literally adopts a new identity by trading in her car and signing the Bates motel register with the name Marie Samuels.
