The old master, now a slave to television, has turned out another Hitchcock-and-bull story in which the mystery is not so much who done it as who cares.

One of the landmarks--not merely of the movies, but of 20th-century art.

Why is this movie Hitchcock's masterpiece? Because no movie plunges us more deeply into the dizzying heart of erotic obsession.

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

There is a glumness to the film that is notably missing from the director's other films of the period.

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

You watch this guy going slowly over the brink and realize, good grief, this is Jimmy Stewart.

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

In its dark heart, the film is a sorrowful contemplation of love and the veils that manipulate sexual passions.
