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 Scottieโ€™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.

"30.3. 2024 The very first scene of "Vertigo" is crucial regarding Hitchcock's metaphorical intentions: a detective Scottie Ferguson witnesses his fellow policeman falling to his death during a rooftop chase. Acrophobia caused by the terrible tragedy has turned Scottie into an unstable man, who is forced to live his life metaphorically hanging from a flimsy rain gutter. Death is a recurring theme in "Vertigo". Scottie is obsessed with death and his new experiences reinforce his unhealthy obses"

My Top 10 Favourite Hitchcock Movies (10 movies items)

"It's about Scottie, an acrophobic detective who, as a favour to an old friend, accepts one last job: to watch over his friend's suicidal wife. But he desperately falls in love with her. The rest of the movie is kind of hard to explain, because it's not about what's literally happening on the surface. It's about what's going on in Scottie's mind, how he's obsessing over this woman and going completely insane. It's truly remarkable how well the movie pulls you right into his mindset. It's simply a"

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If Vertigo is your favorite movie....You love Hitchcock, you love film, and you love classic noir with mystery, and feel romantic and wistful at such films, redolent of adroit protagonists solving mysteries, with unexpected twists. Further, you are hypnotized by the play of color, especially in conjunction with the visage of noir beauty, in all forms, especially that of Kim Novak. The bell tolls for thee. "
