Vatican newspaper pays tribute to Hitchcock’s Vertigo
Catholic World News - October 22, 2013
L’Osservatore Romano has published a tribute to Vertigo, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 film.
Emilio Ranzato, who described the film as the “joy of surrealists of all times,” said that the film’s depiction of “the old San Francisco,” with its “ancient and European roots,” contributes significantly to “the unique atmosphere of the film.”
At the same time, Ranzato criticized the use of high-definition format in a recent re-release: the details, he said, “overwhelm the perception of the viewer.”
