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.

" Notes: I have always been a fan of Alfred Hitchcock and this has always been my favorite movie of his. Basically, the whole thing looked amazing and I have never seen such a spellbinding progression in a thriller. Through the whole thing, you can’t help wonder what is going on with this mysterious woman and like James Stewart, you are pretty much getting obsessed with this lady. The other thing I loved about this flick is how well developed the main character was. Indeed, it was probably the"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"In 2012, Alfred Hitchcock's psychological thriller 'Vertigo' finally toppled 'Citizen Kane' from the top spot of the prestigious Sight and Sound Critic's Poll, a position 'Citizen Kane' had held for 50 years. 'Vertigo's gradual ascent to the top mirrors its protagonist's own faltering progress up a dizzying spiral staircase and, also like that journey, comes with its own set of horrors once the pinnacle is reached. For decades, 'Citizen Kane' has languished in an unwatched state for large portio"
