Who am I to review Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” from 1958? The film has been reviewed, admired and just plain loved scores of times.
James Stewart’s incredible. Kim Novak is creepily fabulous. Barbara Bel Geddes is the most gorgeous buddy a guy could ask for, and quirky enough to guarantee, according to 1950s movie logic, that he won’t fall in love with her. And best of all is the script, so witty, sharp, cunning, insightful, complicated, original and even — yes — thrilling.
It’s a fine film, possibly one of the best films flat out, and everyone should see it, or see it again, this week on the big screen.
According to the taglines, this is “a Hitchcock thriller. You should see it from the beginning!” and Hitchcock “engulfs you in a whirlpool of terror and tension” and, my favorite, the movie is “a tall story about a pushover.” If that doesn’t arouse your movie-butter popcorn cravings, you must be unconscious.
