Hitchcock retrospective at GOMA >>> VERTIGO
A lesser known but bang on the money Hitchcock film. Vertigo has some beautiful, timeless shots of the San Francisco bay area and also delivers a script whereby the key female characters induce heaving gaffaws in the audience. By that I mean that it was a product of it's era, especially in regard to the social norms of 'the romantic pursuit' in 1950s America. Vertigo is also hailed as Hitchcock's most poetic work according to some sources. It was also the last instance in which James Stewart acted under his direction. Check how orange he is in it errrr!
