(1958) dir Alfred Hitchcock w/James Stewart, Kim Novak, Barbara Bel Geddes [130 min; 35mm]
In VERTIGO, Alfred Hitchcock’s masterful, lurid exploration of obsession, 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.

“If any film deserves to sit on the Iron Throne of the Hitchcock oeuvre, it is the magnetic and mystifying VERTIGO.” Brattle Film Notes contributor Manish Mathur talks about his favorite film in “VERTIGO: Souvenirs of a Killing”
