Feeling Dizzy Over the Greatness of Vertigo


I wasn't slated to write a blurb about today's announced Muriel Awards winner, Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 masterpiece Vertigo for one of its Special categories, Best Film of the 1950s...but Steve Carlson asked me and someone else whether I could write something up about it at the last minute, and I decided to step in and volunteer.

So here it is! I think I've seen this film enough times that I was able to write something reasonably fresh and penetrating about this much-discussed film in a pinch...but I'll let you all be the judge.

My other contribution to the Muriels' brand of cinema love will come sometime next week. I'll link you all to it when it's published.
