This is a friendly reminder to visit us on May 13. Eric Binford from DIARY OF A MOVIE MANIAC will co-host a discussion on Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo with me. I watched it again last week and enjoyed it more than ever. It is obvious Alfred Hitchcock is a metaphor for Scottie, and I will share why. The color imagery is one of the better aspects of the film.
Eric said, “Vertigo constantly alludes to religion, specifically Catholicism. Also, Hitchcock’s brutal critique of the shortcomings of idealization interests me a great deal. Idealism tends to have positive connotations. It’s often used to describe a person’s high morals. In Vertigo, interestingly, Hitchcock suggests that the opposite is true.”
Please join us on Friday the 13. It’s sure to be a lucky day!If you would like to co-host a monthly discussion sometime in your future, let’s talk about what you are passionate about. A genre? A star? A director? A film?
