Hitchcock's finest film.
August 20, 2019
We can appreciate [Hitchcock's] films... and yet still acknowledge that their female characters were not created by a very well-adjusted, progressivethinking man.

The greatest of all time.
May 3, 2019
Audiences and critics in 1958 were not prepared to deal with the kind of twisted darkness Vertigo presents so clearly ... but hopefully we're all grown up now and able to deal with it.

November 7, 2018
A film totally in thrall to the lure/peril of looking, and filmed almost entirely from the perspective or emotion of the subconscious.

It's doubtful that Vertigo can take equal rank with the best of the Hitchcock studies -- it has too many holes -- but it assays high in visual confectionary of place, person and celluloid wiles.

Combines in an almost unique balance Hitchcock's brash flair for psychological shocks with his elegant genius for dapper stylishness.

June 9, 2018
Hitchcock's film is distinctive, above all else, because it is the only one in his long catalogue without a scornful mask separating the obsessions from the vulnerabilities, and into the frames he pours the living essence of his timeless panache.

The tempo may be generally very slow, but it is not monotonous; the camera work may be unostentatious but it is quietly, calmly efficient in establishing character, atmosphere, and uncertainty.

The most complex film made by Alfred Hitchcock.

March 15, 2015
It's as much a wonder of suspense as it is a catalogue of the director's themes and an allegory for his own art of enticement-and for the erotic pitfalls of his métier.
June 1, 2011
Hitchcock's rich and strange fable of love lost, and lost again, makes the case for him as a grand experimental artist who labored in genre cinema.
