Vertigo review Product Description



DVD. Feature film. Hitchcock dir. film starring Jimmy Stewa rt & Kim Novak.

A detective tails a cool, glamorous woman around the equally glamorous San Francisco of the 1950s; his fear of heights prevents him from saving her life. Obsessed with the dead woman, he stalks, meets, and manipulates a suspiciously similar-looking, if somewhat lower-class, woman, who inexplicably falls for him even though he demands she change her identity to match his fantasy.   ...See Full Description

Classic film in classic style
Hitchcock's "Vertigo" is widely considered to be his masterpiece and would be found on the Top Ten films of all time for many people. This reconstruction on DVD presents the film with comsummate clarity of image and sound, including the colors which were a key part of Hitch's subliminal symbolism, and the marvelous Bernard Herrmann score. If you had only a handful of films on your shelf this should be one, to be played over and over again.

superb entertainment
Considered by many to be a masterpiece, Vertigo is most definitely a remarkable movie. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock Vertigo tells the story of a San Francisco detective played by James Stewart who whilst suffering from acrophobia is hired to investigate the mysterious behaviour of the wife of an old friend. This newly restored widescreen collector's edition looks and sounds fantastic, the special features are very interesting and include a revealng commentary with associate producer Herbert Coleman and interview with the directors daughter Pat Hitchcook. If you have never seen Vertigo before it's convoluted story line will keep you on the edge of your seat, if on the other hand like myself you are familiar with the film you will still marvel at the brilliance of Hitchcock. Kim Novak playing the roll of Madeline looks stunning as do the San Francisco locations and Bernard Herrmann's romantic and at times ethereal score assist in raising the ranking of this movie up to five stars.

AMAZING
Vertigo is without a doubt one of the greatest and most psychologically complex pictures ever made. This film is definitely Hitch's most personal film and is considered a classic up until this day. Vertigo deals with obsession, murder, guilt, love, voyeurism and other aspects which make it one of the most significant films ever made. Kim Novak did an incredible job playing 2 different amazing roles and her performance is considered as being one of the greatest performances in cinema history. Jimmy Stewart plays a retired detective who suffers from vertigo and is afraid of high places due to his accident. He is hired by Gavin Elster, who is an old friend, to keep an eye on his wife. He begins to follow Madeline all over San Francisco and from there the film engages in twists and turns. That's exactly what the master of suspense loved to portray in his films, MYSTERY. Everything about this film is great. The scores from Bernard Hermann in this film are considered some of the greatest scores in movie history. The unbelievable camera shots and the way this film was able to tell a story in a uniquely captivating way is truly amazing. This film has been impersonated so many times and is still talked about and imitated in mass media as well as cultural media. When this film was released it wasn't a big success. Critics dismissed it and audiences ignored it. Although today some people consider it to be Hitch's greatest film. Overtime it has become a phenomenon. Vertigo is on the top ten greatest movies list of the AFI. I think that this is Hitch's second greatest masterpiece behind Psycho. Vertigo requires multiple viewings for you to appreciate the brilliance and the complexity of the film. The ending is considered one of the greatest and most emotional endings in cinema history. Definitely a 5 star ultimate Hitchcock thriller which will stand the test of time.

Classic
Some people consider Vertigo to be the ultimate Hitchcock thriller. It is on the top 10 greatest movie list of the American Film Institute. It is one of the most important pictures ever made. This is definately the most complex Hitch film and the plot keeps you thinking and the suspence keeps you interested. Jimmy Stewart played his role perfectly and Kim Novak also did an unbelivable job aswell. I believe this is Alfred Hitchcocks 3rd greatest film behind Psycho and Rear Window. Vertigo is the film which cemented Alfred Hitchcock as being the greatest director in the world. Jimmy Stewart plays a man who is suffering from Vertigo and he is hired by a friend to keep an eye on his wife. The plot thickens , and there is more to the story than what meets the eye. This movie represents what HItchocks cinema really stood for. The drama, suspence, thrills, acting, plot. DEFINATELY A 5 STAR MOVIE.

Good script
This film, as with many of Hitchcock’s other classics, has a documentary feel. It pauses on light enjoyable scenery, and there are many repeats of visual traditions in the film, such as the atmosphere of Scottie’s driving as he follows Madeleine. The dalogue from the script is the best part in this film.
