It's Complicated

Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 suspense thriller continues to blossom into fresh relevance with each new generation of film lovers with what it says about men, women and the wounds people inflict on each other in the name of love. Unlike its more entertaining brethren (North by Northwest, Rear Window), it's an odd, dreamlike movie that doesn't seem to care about meeting an audience halfway and that only becomes richer, sadder and more profound with multiple viewings. Stewart is so in love with the woman in his head that he can't see the woman in his arms. It's a movie about the ways we try to mold the people we love into the people who never loved us back. Vertigo was named the Greatest Film of All Time by the Sight and Sound 2012 Poll.
