Former detective ‘Scottie’ (James Stewart) is forced to retire after an incident on the job gave him acrophobia and vertigo. Despite this, a wealthy college acquaintance hires Scottie to trail his wife Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak) as he believes she is either in danger or up to something. Initially reluctant to accept, as Scottie delves deeper into the investigation he soon finds that he cannot tear himself away from it. Initially absolutely slated by critics, Vertigo is now seen as one of the best films ever made, recently knocking Citizen Kane from its number one spot on the Sight and Sound’s Critics poll of the best films ever. This film is absolutely entrancing yet eerily disturbing, making it a must watch for anyone even remotely interested.
