Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1958 film Vertigo. It’s an incredible film that wasn’t fully appreciated when it was initially released. It wasn’t until later that the film started to be studied and considered a cinematic masterpiece.
I’ve got a couple video essays for you to watch below that do a fantastic job digging into the film and contextualizing the film and its place in movie history. The first essay comes from Fandor’s Jacob Swinney, and it provides an overview of Vertigo’s history and influence. The second video comes from Alejandro Villarreal, which is a collection of interviews with directors about the film.
If you have never seen Hitchcock’s Vertigo, you should check it out! In fact, you should watch all the classic Hitchcock films that you haven’t seen!
