  1. I'll be more specific.... I tried the game on an iPad Pro AND on a desktop iMac. I got everything to work (i.e., it did not freeze), but it took several "refreshes" for the individual tap sequences to play. The problem I had on BOTH devices was that when I went to check on my choices for the sequence to see if they were correct, I clicked to get the answer, but it looked like the link to the answers was broken.

Norman is clinically split, to the point that he even has full conversations with himself in the guise of his mother (including another voice). For Marion, it's more of a moral conflict --
  4. 1. The music starts first, and sets a tone of mystery with a lot of punctuation from dark brass sounds that are dissonant from the hypnotic tone of the rest of the opening of the score. The mood is definitely ominous, but also somewhat relaxing -- so it sets up that there are going to be a lot of conflicts in this film. 2. For me the single most powerful image is when the face is washed over with red, and the spiral begins in her eye. That is one arresting image, and it starts the sequence of all the different types of spirals. I find it interesting that the sequence with the spiral
