fellow film fanatics
This evening the Pasadena Film Society begins it seventh screening series with Alfred Hitchcock’s
1958 classic "Vertigo". This is a film Ebert believed was among Hitchcock’s best, see his review HERE. Starring James Stewart and Kim Novak, the film is on the surface a gripping suspense of the classic ‘private detective’ genre.
But, as the story unfolds we see how one (ie., James Stewart) emotionally without a sure grip is susceptible to a "manipulation of belief". (See the analysis HERE .)
This film is overflowing with metaphors, a rich feast for discussion. In particular, which color occurs in almost every scene and what was Hitchcock’s intention in this display?
As with previous seasons, the screening time is 7 pm Friday (tonight) located at the Fairmont branch of the Pasadena Library. (Phone reservations at 832-598-4191 will guarentee you a seat.) So please join us for this psycologically twisty film, followed by snacks and discussion, all for free.
