Even such a master-craftsman as director Alfred Hitchcock sometimes forgets that more than enough is too much, as he proves in this photogenic San Francisco suspense-mystery, which is still badly in need of the cutter's shears.

The storytelling isn't up to much. It drags and drags.

At the risk of sounding slow-witted, I must complain that Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo was a little too difficult for me.
December 21, 2015
Vertigo ultimately comes off as a fairly disastrous misfire that's almost entirely devoid of engrossing, attention-grabbing elements.

The old master, now a slave to television, has turned out another Hitchcock-and-bull story in which the mystery is not so much who done it as who cares.

Hitchcock's finest film.

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.
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.

In Vertigo, Hitchcock completely transcends barriers of generic making the film into something enigmatic and impossible to classify. [Full review in Spanish]

Technically well made, but there are a plethora of more entertaining Hitchcock films available.

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.
