    An egg rolls around on the kitchen table. It starts to veer towards the edge. Suspense builds up. Is it going to fall of is it going to take a turn and be saved? Nope. It drops and hits the chandelier in the lavatory.

    The ending is unjustifiable. Whether I look at it with reason or feeling, from left or right, up or inside, it's still an ending that left me unsatisfied after quite a lot of build up.

    Maybe some day I will learn to enjoy the entire film, but for now, I can only say, Vertigo is ok.

    You've really got to dig deep into Hitchcock's way of dealing with his use of specific shots and cinematography, being a film studies student, this is an excellent film to study, because it allows you to go further and arrive to your own conclusions, even if there are many. Saw this for the first film and I have to admit it had me completely confused but when you go back and watch specific scenes again in depth you can see how clever Alfred Hitchock was with him being a director and adapting the film to his own unique style for spectators. 4 years 3 months ago
