“Retro Mercury” continues the series of works by Alexander Chursin based on clips from noir films. The heroine of Hitchcock’s “Psycho” gets in a car; she is tired; she is running away, “escaping” — and behind this significant shot, Chursin emphasizes how the plot turns. A plot from which this national icon of an actress can’t get out — just like the viewer’s eye from this ironic, heart-wrenching composition of inevitable death.
