Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Justifying Vertigo's poor initial performance, it is a film that requires distance, as well as the completion of Hitchcock's career. It is a moment of acknowledgment in the final, retrospective establishment of the director's frequent themes.

James Stewart, on camera almost constantly, comes through with a startlingly fine performance as the lawyer-cop who suffers from acrophobia.

Vertigo (1958) is one of Alfred Hitchcock's most powerful, deep, and stunningly beautiful films (in widescreen 70 mm VistaVision) - it is a film noir

The most-discussed work of the master; despairingly sardonic and demanding of multiple viewings.

One of the things that still amazes me about this movie is the way its study of obsession is so single-minded.

With less playfulness and much more overt libido than other Hitchcock classics, Vertigo was always anomalous.
