Trying to watch this mess since it's rated so high. 13 minutes with no dialog or meaningful development isn't alright. Even if it redeems itself in the last hour and a half, modern movie watchers need more incentive to stay with a story than 20 different shots of Jimmy Stewart head while getting in and out of cars.

Because people this generation have attention spans of puppies smoking crack. This is one of the greatest movies of all time by far!

Well, what do you want? CGI explosions and sex scenes? Hitchcock movies are some of the true examples of classic cinema!

The less Jimmy Stewart talks the better, I always say.

Far from the greatest film ever made, but still enjoyable.

Hands down, the unmatched, best mystery thriller I've ever laid eyes on. The best score ever heard by these ears. The richest mood setter in the business even by today's standard. Ladies and gentlemen, I assure you, they don't make 'em like this anymore. Vertigo is a once in a lifetime gem to behold.

Just watched it again for like the 8th time now. It's currently my 2nd favourite film of all time, right behind Kubrick's 2001! Truly an amazing film!

The apotheosis of Hitchcock, and probably of all film.

The first two acts could have been a little bit better. But oh boy, this movie wrapped up nicely. Really a masterpiece of story telling. Jimmy Stewart was great as always.

I've watched Vertigo for the 5th time in the last year tonight... and it's now my favourite film. The Empire Strikes Back was the movie that got me into movies and I've had it as my favourite film for years but Vertigo has everything I want in a movie and executes these elements perfectly. Hitchcock is my favourite director and this is his best directed movie, Stewart is my favourite actor and he gives his best performance here. I loved the psychological themes and elements. I loved the symbolism and the twists. Also, I love movies that leave lasting impressions and after I first watched Vertigo I could hardly sleep that night. Even for the first 5-10 minutes after watching it tonight I was frozen in silence!

I had a very similar experience with Vertigo when I first saw it. I struggled for years to do right by it and put it over my previous #1, Casablanca. Just this year, I made the change and am happy about it.
