Rebirth of a classic - Vertigo review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
03/12/2006

It's certainly one of Hitchcock's classics. If you like Hitchcock, you'll like this one.

The plot has an unexpected twist at the end, but if you watch the movie attentively, there are enough hints to let you lift the mystery.

The pace of the movie takes it's time, so allow yourself to be patient and enjoy the details.

For me as a video professional, it was very interesting to see in the special features how they restored the movie. And they did a truly amazing job.

Classic - Vertigo review by Big Bob

This is quite simply fabulous. It has clues running through it but the end still catches you out the first time you see it. One of the better Hitchcocks and really worth watching.

Classic Hitchcock - Vertigo review by GI

Spoiler Alert
09/04/2021

This is considered to be Alfred Hitchcock's greatest achievement and it has occasionally been cited as one of the greatest movies ever made. It is certainly a masterpiece of suspense and for its time it's a bold tale of sexual obsession, misogyny and an example of the 'male gaze' theory of American drama. A mystery thriller it stars James Stewart, who was criticised for being too old for the role, who plays 'Scottie' Ferguson, a former police detective forced to retire after his fear of heights resulted in the death of a colleague. He is hired by an old friend to follow his wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak), who suffers from blackouts and Scottie is asked to keep a protective eye on her. But soon Scottie becomes obsessively in love with her and they start an affair. When another tragedy strikes and Madeleine is killed Scottie falls into a deep depression until one day he sees Judith who bears a resemblance to Madeleine. They start a relationship and Scottie tries to influence how she dresses and acts in order to look more and more like Madeleine. This has some great twists in the plot and it's a brave role for Stewart who was better known for wholesome roles. Hitchcock utilised new photographic effects to simulate the dizzying effects of Scottie's vertigo and he resisted attempts to over explain the plot. This is a major American film and certainly one that every film fan should make sure they see.
