Intertextuality - What interests you about intertextuality in film.

Intertextuality in film ..
               " is the making up of one texts meaning by other texts. Like an authour borrowing and transforming a prior text to make there own therefore is used to describe the visual referencing between films/.Very, literally films borrow aspects of scenes from eachother which you can recognise"

Intertexuality interests me as when it is used in films it is so subtle you almost cannot realise. i especially enjoy Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho shower scene and the way it is used in many films such as; What Lies Beneath, Fatal Attractions, The Stepfather. This scene obviously inspired many directors to use references of the secene in their own films and make it their own. The scene has a unique feel to it is soo creepy and the perfect setting to place a brutal murder, no wonder the audience cant peel their eyes off.
