(1958) dir Alfred Hitchcock w/James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes, Tom Helmore [129 min]
Every 10 years the venerable film magazine Sight & Sound releases its “Greatest Films of All Time” list and this summer marked the latest release – with a twist ending! For the first time in 60 years, Citizen Kane has been knocked off the top of the list by VERTIGO, Alfred Hitchcock’s masterful, lurid exploration of obsession. In VERTIGO, Jimmy Stewart stars as Scottie Ferguson, a down-on-his-luck detective hired by a friend to tail his wife, Madeleine (Novak), who has been acting strangely. As Scottie follows Madeleine, he develops feelings for her – feelings that become dark and twisted after her apparent death by suicide. Perhaps Hitchcock’s deepest film, VERTIGO has long been hailed as a classic but has now gained special significance at the top of the Sight & Sound poll. Come see if you agree with the placement at these special screenings.
