Considered one of the greatest films ever made and Hitchcock’s masterpiece, Vertigo is, according to the late critic Roger Ebert, also the director’s most confessional fi lm. In this mid-century version of the Greek legend “Pygmalion,” James Stewart plays Scottie, a troubled former police detective, who becomes pathologically obsessed with the aloof and beautiful Madeleine (Kim Novak), the quintessential Hitchcockian heroine. Throughout this taut, psychological thriller, Bernard Herrmann’s score underlines Scottie’s growing obsession, building circular and spiral melodies that echo his increasingly desperate frame of mind.  (35mm.
