The other day in the Miami Movie Class (every Wednesday from 2:15pm), we watched clips from an old movie titled, "Vertigo". It was an old Hitchcock movie which I had never watched before. However, after watching parts of it in class, I thought I wanted to see the movie in its entirety. I like the old movies. The dialogue is much more interesting than modern movies, and without so many distractions, explosions, gratuitous sex and violence scenes, and of course, someone shouting, "OH, MY GOD!!!".
However....I was disappointed in the movie. First of all, isn't it unrealistic that they fell in love so quickly?? I thought how could such a beautiful young girl fall in love with him anyway? Secondly, I don't like the way Hitchcock spilled the beans and revealed everything in the middle of the movie. I am talking about when the girl was writing the letter, and she openly explained that it was all a planned murder. It would have been so much better if instead, she had revealed that on the stairs of the church at the end of the movie. Finally, why did she jump???? I don't get it. I googled it and people had many different answers, but none of them are satisfying to me.
I give this movie a 7/10.
