Film Review: Vertigo (1958 – watched 2018)

This is one of those films that I’ve always meant to watch, but never have.

When I saw it was being released at the cinema for it’s 60th anniversary, I jumped at it.

What a great film!

The cast (James Stewart, Kim Novak, and the excellent Barbara Bel Geddes) shine throughout the movie.

It is very much of its time, and something made like this almost certainly wouldn’t work as a movie these days, but there is something magical about the setting, the pacing, and the film technology used back then.

A wonderful movie, and experience.

I give this movie 9.0/10.
