Topping Sight & Sound’s most recent critics’ poll of the 50 greatest films of all time, this 1958 psychological thriller was considered a critical and box office failure in its initial release. Hitchcock casts Jimmy Stewart against type as a traumatized, former San Francisco cop turned gumshoe whose chance encounter with a mysterious woman (Kim Novak) spins him into a world of mystery and obsession, forcing him to grapple with both unchecked desire and a yearning for complete control over her. Vertigo is a Technicolor nightmare, imbued with dark implications and a riddle that only grows with each subsequent viewing. As an artifact of 20th-century filmmaking, the film is unparalleled in its depiction of erotic fixation, relentless in its pessimism, and completely devoid of redemption for the characters contained within it. “Hitchcock is daring us to leap. He has prepared the ultimate fix for a cinema junkie: a movie to get lost in.“—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
