“A ravishingly beautiful hallucinatory nightmare.” (The New Yorker)
Perhaps the most resonant of Hitchcock’s many 1950s masterpieces, Vertigo is dark, twisty, and obsessive. It includes stellar performances by James Stewart as an ex-cop trying to protect a mysterious blonde and Kim Novak as the archetypical Hitchcock femme fatale. Add stunning widescreen photography, subtle color, and a sheer-perfection score by Bernard Herrmann—does it get any better than this?
