Movie Review: VERTIGO
One of Alfred Hitchcock’s greatest cinematic achievements, Vertigo, celebrates its 50th anniversary with an all-new 2-disc Special Edition DVD! Set in San Francisco, Vertigo creates a dizzying web of mistaken identity, passion and murder after an acrophobic detective (James Stewart) rescues a mysterious blonde (Kim Novak) from the bay. Recognized for excellence in AFI’s 100 Years...100 Movies, this dreamlike thriller from the Master of Suspense is as entertaining today as it was 50 years ago. Featuring revealing bonus features and a digitally remastered picture, Vertigo is a “great motion picture that demands multiple viewings” (Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide).
This another good movie from Hitchcock. It has all the elements of a good film, drama. suspense, comedy and romance. The acting was wonderful. James Stewart was great as the Detective John Ferguson who investigates why a woman had faked her death. This movie had a lot of twists and turns. Kim Novak was good even though it is said she was not Hitchcocks first choice. This movie was far from predictable. It shocked me to the end.
I rate this movie a 4/5
