THE ART OF THE CUT

Psycho (1960) dir. Alfred Hitchcock, film editing by George Tomasini

"It’s…an instant. A fraction of time in any film where suddenly there is a gap - maybe an ellipse or a cut? - that leads me into the movie. I never enter through a shot. I need a cut. I need an ellipse. I need a gap. And then…it’s something. It’s an experience that I cannot define or compare to anything else. Even the beauty of a shot, for me it’s not enough. It’s not enough! A shot exists. But it’s the cut. It’s the cut. The cut does it. A cut is always a gap, even if it’s very, very small. It’s where you can enter."

- Director Claire Denis, in What I Love About Movies

There are over 90 splices in the iconic shower scene in Psycho, but you never actually see the knife penetrate Marion’s body, nor do you see her attacker clearly. The edits were, of course, partly in place to appease motion picture censors at the time, as there would be no way a film could get away with such apparent gore and violence, which is light years away from what can be seen in theaters today. However, the brilliance of this scene is in its power of suggestion, the uniqueness of the cut, as Claire Denis so beautifully points out in the above quote. The audience never sees the knife go in, yet our brains can fill in the gaps in between because our imaginations can conjure the rest of the horrific episode. The cut is what makes this scene truly terrifying, because leaving the rest up to our imaginations…well, what’s scarier than what we can imagine? 

One might say the cut is what sets cinema apart from other forms of art. After all, what other works of art allow stories to be told in that brief moment between frames?
