Closer Looks: Vertigo

May 11 @ 6:00 pm

“Considered by many to be director Alfred Hitchcock’s greatest achievement, it was also his personal favorite. James Stewart is brilliant as Scottie Ferguson, an acrophobic detective hired to shadow a friend’s oddly behaving wife, Madelaine. Scotty falls deeply in love with her, played by the stunning and mysterious Kim Novak. During his investigation/courtship, Madelaine accidentally dies; Scotty has a nervous breakdown; and while recovering, he happens upon a woman he swears is Madelaine and—you’ll have to come to see the film to find out what happens. Made in spectacular widescreen color, VERTIGO is gorgeous to look at, highly entertaining, and with one of the greatest music scores by Bernard Herrmann, that raises the film’s emotional temperature to a fever pitch. Made in classic 1950’s Hollywood style, Hitchcock creates a hallucinatory puzzle of a thriller intertwined with the perverse personal poetry of obsessive love.”
