This is the one. Named in Sight & Sound’s 2012 international critics poll as the greatest movie ever made (displacing Citizen Kane after decades), Hitchcock’s Vertigo is a confounding—and confoundingly perfect—work of art, a tale of obsession that still has the power to shock. The haunted stares of James Stewart, as retired private eye Scottie and Kim Novak, as the object of his increasingly twisted desire, have become the look of cinema itself.
