    2. Suzanne bought me a couple of the BFI film companions for Christmas, and this one was certainly more detailed than The Wizard of Oz in terms of analysing the actual film techniques used. Vertigo did move up last year into the number one spot for the "Best film of all time" in a critics poll.I started to read the book, and then realised I wasn't actually sure I'd seen Vertigo all the way through, so before progressing past the introduction, I sat down to watch on Monday night (I luckily happen to [...]


    3. An essay about Alfred Hitchcock’s film Vertigo. Charles Barr is one of the film critics associated with the British film periodical Movie. In the 1960s, influenced by Cahiers du cinema, Movie was notable for introducing into English the idea that even Hollywood film directors could be 'auteurs' and that even Hollywood films could be complex works of art. Probably more important was that Movie attempted detailed textual readings of films. And this is what Barr does here. In the introduction Bar [...]

    5. Nice little book on a great movie. Academic, but highly readable, well-researched, and reasonable, too. If only all film criticism were written like this.


    6. Barr has written a cold and analytical dissection of a cold and analytical film. That's a little bit of a suprise, when other BFI Classics entries are sometimes given over to a more personal appeal to the reader, but Barr's approach works because it challenges us to separate from our subjective opinion of Vertigo and just focus on Hitchcock's mastery. Of particular interest is the way Barr breaks down major sequences from the film, shot for shot, comparing the perspectives of the camera, the sym [...]


    7. One of the great things about the BFI series is that contributing authors each approach their works from different schools of criticism. While Charles Barr does go into the historical and collaborative efforts behind the film Vertigo - including debates on the contributions of the multiple writers involved - but the majority of Charles Barr's analysis focuses on textual deconstructionism, as he examines Hitchcock's film frame by frame, shot by shot, delving not only into what individual images o [...]


    8. Bu serinin baskısına bayılıyorum! Buna rağmen şu ana kadar okuduklarım arasında en beğenmediğim oldu Vertigo. Özellikle çok fazla yorum katmadan kare kare filmi anlatmaya başladığı orta kısımda biraz sıkıldım. Memnuniyetsizliğim belki filmi çok sevdiğim için beklentimin yüksek olmasından belki de zaten hali hazırda hakkında çok fazla şey okuduğum için de olabilir. Vertigo'nun ilham kaynaklarını öğrenmek ve bazı ilginç prodüksiyon/kurgu detayları için oku [...]


    9. I first saw the movie Vertigo as a child and it remains one of my favorite Hitchcock movies. This tale of romantic/sexual obsession, of psychological manipulation and deception has an abrupt tragic ending unlike others of Hitch's movies of the same time period, i.e North by Northwest, Rear Window or The Birds. Professor Charles Barr presents a detailed analysis of the making of Vertigo and the film techniques that create the mesmerizing quality of the movie.



    10. A quick and simple read that covers the major themes in the film Vertigo.Includes still-text analysis in each section.
