My favourite movie of all time...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vertigo [DVD] (DVD)
I love this movie - my favourite James Stewart film, favourite Hitchcock film... in fact, my favourite film. It includes a very interesting documentary on the film and also the restoration. The documentary on the film includes interview with Kim Novak and Hitchcock's family.
The atmosphere Hitchcock managed to create - the ground-breaking (and much copied) camera work... the angles he shoots from, are breathtaking. The cast is at their best (Novak especially, who is mesmerising here, never did anything to touch her performance in any other production, in my opinion).
Haunting, groundbreaking and breathtaking. If you are only ever going to see one Hitchcock film, make it this one.
