Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 7th at 7pm for Vertigo at the Brattle Theatre . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Fifty years on, VERTIGO has lost none of its power as a gripping thriller, but as we know in our Dr.-Phil-enlightened age, it’s also an exploration of some serious untreated emotional disorders. Stewart doesn’t play against type so much as he burrows into his persona to newfound and frightening depths as a San Francisco detective who finds himself obsessed by (at least) two versions of the seductive Kim Novak.
(And if you want to make it a double-feature, be sure to catch Rear Window at 4:30pm!)
