Since we discussed Vertigo in class several times, I decided to watch the Alfred Hitchcock movie. It was a good use of 2 hours and 9 minutes of my time. Jimmy Stewart plays a much different character than his normal films. The film opens with an extreme close up of an eye. You can see many emotions in the eye within the few minutes of watching it which gets you wondering what she sees to make her emotions change so quickly. Stewarts character Scottie Ferguson has Vertigo. His acrophobia is seen several times using the Zolly technique. This gives you a real sense of what he is feeling. If you are a Jimmy Stewart or Hitchcock fan, I highly recommend this movie.
