FORT MASON FLIX: Vertigo
Fort Mason Center for Arts & CultureOct 18th @ 9:00pm
“Scottie, do you believe that someone out of the past – someone dead – can enter and take possession of a living being?”
About: Frequently described as one of the greatest feature films ever made – and certainly one of Hitchcock’s masterworks – Vertigo highlights its director’s and cinema’s long-held obsessions: voyeurism, the beautiful woman, and the man who must possess her. As a cop forced to retire after a rooftop chase gone wrong, Scottie (Stewart) takes an odd job tailing an old friend’s mysterious wife, Madeline (Novak). Drives through San Francisco streets and stops at the Legion of Honor lead to another mission gone wrong, and the film doubles down on its heroine’s looks, its hero’s desires, and the tragedy waiting in the camera’s eye.
