Good Hitchcock.

Hitchcock is Hitchcock. Things are not always what they seem. Hitchcock, and his favourite leading man, James Stewart once again take a central concept - a what if - and twists a tale around it.

I'm not sure I can identify with vertigo as much as I can with some of his other obsessions - the nosy neighbour who sees too much, the case of the mistaken identity, being falsely accused ... read more

The movie opens with the main character Detective John 'Scottie' Ferguson (James Steward) almost falling from a building while chasing a criminal. This traumatic experience causes Scottie to have a fear of heights that results in dizziness, or vertigo. The premise of the film plays on the idea of vertigo as Scottie’s fear of heights makes him unable to work on the field as a policeman, and conse... read more

I have always been a fan of Alfred Hitchcock and this has always been my favorite movie of his. Since it has been a long since I watched it, I thought it was really time for a re-watch. Eventually, I was once again blown away by the whole thing. Indeed, in my opinion, you have Hitchcock here at the very top of his Art. Basically, the whole thing looked amazing and I have never seen such a spellbin... read more

Ferguson (Stewart) is a retired detective, his career ended by the onset of a paralyzing fear of heights. An old friend, the wealthy Gavin Elster, hires Ferguson to follow his wife (Kim Novak), whom, he explains, has grown obsessed with an ancestor of hers. The assignment, however, draws Ferguson out of his comfortable role as observer and into a complex web of intrigue, mingled with the detective's own fantasies and fears.

Movie Reviews (1251-1300) (50 movies items)

" One of Hitchcock's top five movies. A movie that grips attention from the moment Bernhard Herrmann introduce the movie with his film score. Hitchcock and James Stewart collaborate on their final film together and their teamwork go so smooth and beautiful that it is hard not to enjoy every single frame of his acting here. Kim Novak also do one of the most definitive femme fatales that has been on screen. Magnificently shot and every set-piece has a glorious function in a story that makes sense a"

"Vertigo (1958) Director: Alfred Hitchcock Writers: Alec Coppel, Samuel A. Taylor Stars: James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes Vertigo is an instant classic and is one of the best films ever made in my opinion. It's full of beautiful shots, suspenseful writing, and lots of character and wit. It's endlessly watchable and fully enjoyable."

Exploring Hitchcock (7/12-7/25) (14 movies items)

"I've really never given this film a fair chance; it's obviously one of the greatest films ever made, maybe even THE greatest; my God, I don't think I've ever seen a film with the ability to thrill an audience while putting them in essentially a dreamlike trance. Every subtle detail builds to two of films' most cathartic climaxes (the middle and the end). And at its core: cinema's most heartbreaking love story. A nearly perfect film and one I have been constantly thinking about."
