Rebirth of a classic - Vertigo review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

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.

Very dated but enjoyable melodrama - Vertigo review by PV

Spoiler Alert

When watching this, first remember that the story comes from a novel - the sort of melodrama novel best forgotten now - and that Hitch had a screenplay to work with. I tend to get annoyed that people think film directors create everything - the story, the script, the characters. They don't/ They merely interpret it.

Having said that, this is an enjoyable watch. Very dated though - and perhaps the trendy (for 1958) dream sequence bit is the most dated of all. Strange to think just 10 years after this it was 1968 with all that implies.

Efficiently directed. Unbelievable plot twist at the end (from the book), and a plot hole in Stewart's first hotel visit looking for the girl.

The direction of the height scenes with camera effects is still effective though; probably the best bit is the opening sequence though - which has been much copied in more recent movies.

Three stars.

Classic - Vertigo review by Big Bob

Spoiler Alert

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.
