Rebuffed by critics in its initial release, Vertigo is surely Film’s most sublime vindication: in Sight and Sight’s 2012 poll, it dethroned Citizen Kane as the greatest film of all time.
Detective Scottie Ferguson has retired and is suffering from acrophobia (fear of heights) when he’s pressed back into service by an old college friend who wants him to follow his haunted wife (Kim Novak). Scottie’s condition worsens in the line of duty. Clinically depressed, now Scottie’s also haunted by the past.
In a film about memory, everything’s embedded in ours, from Bernard Herrmann’s evocative score to the green of hope in the film’s palette. Hitchcock’s masterpiece gathers momentum on parallel tracks as riveting mystery and doomed love story, lingering long after the final fade out.
