Vertigo (1958) (2/10)

List item

Directed and produced by one of the most legendary and influential figures in all of cinema, Sir Alfred Hitchcock, Vertigo was an easy choice for the list. It tells the story of police detective Scottie, who suffers from an extreme fear of heights and is hired to prevent the suicide of a former acquaintance’s wife. One of the most defining films of Hitchcock’s entire career, Vertigo was initially divisive among critics, only to be re-evaluated some decades later to receive generally widespread positive reception. It remains significant for its innovative use of camera angles in order to portray the protagonist’s sense of distortion brought about by vertigo.
