Alfred Hitchcock United States, 1958

Francisco R.'s rating of the film Vertigo

Doubtless a masterpiece. But I was dissapointed how the beautiful, amibiguous storyline given in its first half - arguably Hitchcock's most beautiful piece of poetry - gets finally crushed by the all too square gumshoe logic of its second half. That's both the blessing and curse of the movie. It's a fascinating dialectic though.
