Thoughts after watching Vertigo:
1. Alfred Hitchcock was the master of directing kiss scenes.
2. This film has aged extremely well. The cinematography is amazing and it looks absolutely gorgeous and oozes class. I have never seen opening scenes that grabbed me instantly like the ones in Vertigo when Scottie is chasing after a suspect on the roof. It's phenomenal and so well-executed. The direction by Hitchcock in the film is stylish and unmatched. The atmosphere of the film is another element I'd like to point out, because I thought it balances the "real world" with the dreamlike moments expertly and ultimately creates a surreal environment in which you don't know what's real or not. The music definitely helped with creating tension and emotion, which was great too.
