Less Than Vertigo
Eyewear's favourite film has been Vertigo for some time (see my post from four years ago). How could it not be? The fetishism, scopophilia, love-death soundtrack, high romance, and melancholia of desire all make it grist for my mill. So though I love Welles and his Kane, the news that Sight & Sound's once-a-decade critics poll has finally moved Hitch's greatest film to top place - a vertiginous place - is news to celebrate.
