This Week at Bilkent Cinematics: Vertigo

Bilkent Cinematics invites you to its last movie of the fall semester, Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological thriller “Vertigo,” to be screened on Wednesday, December 6.

The plot of the 1958 film concerns Scottie (James Stewart), a San Francisco detective suffering from acrophobia (extreme or irrational fear of heights). Asked to investigate the strange activities of an old friend’s wife, he becomes dangerously obsessed with her.

This classic from the master of suspense was poorly received upon its release, but its reputation has since grown, to the point where it was selected by the 2012 Sight and Sound Critics’ poll as the greatest film ever made. While “Vertigo” is seen by many as a great psychological thriller about obsession, it is far more complicated than that. The film is a masterpiece among masterpieces, but what makes it so unique? Join our screening and post-movie discussion to find out.

“Vertigo” will be screened on Wednesday, December 6 at 6 p.m. in FFB-05. Everyone is welcome; all Cinematics movies are shown with English subtitles. For further details, contact Hossein Dabir at
