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.

"7.6. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Vertigo saikin sitten edustaa Viiden tähden projektia ennakko-oletuksin. Eka tunti sai mut vakuuttuneeksi, että täähän saattaa olla Takaikkunaakin kovempi tapaus, mutta tyhjäkäynnin ja selittelyjen jälkeen mieli muuttuu nopeasti. Tai kuka tietää, sokaisiko juuri Takaikkunan katselu minut jotenkin. Tekninen toteutus ja pakkomielteiden käsittely ovat ensiluokkaista, sitä oppikirjamateriaalia, mutta koska keskeistä juonipointtia mukamas mindfuck-elokuvass"

TCM’s Essentials Vol 2: Another 52 Must See Movies (52 movies items)

"“Some movies thrillers hinge on the notion that seeing isn’t necessarily believing, and there was one director who told that kind of story best: Alfred Hitchcock. He never told such a tale with more panache and suspense than in Vertigo…. San Francisco, that beautiful city by the bay, really deserves costar billing. The location shooting adds so much to the mood and visual impact.” - Robert Osbourne "
