Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo

Hitchcock’s Vertigo is one of the most studied and written about films in the history of Cinema. Shot in San Francisco, Vertigo is a film about … film itself. In particular, it is a film about looking, gender, history, time, memory, trauma … In many ways, Vertigo is a film about the abstraction of the image itself. To me, more than anything else, Vertigo is a film about falling and failing. And this too illuminates our relations to cinema and to the constructions of gender.
