No. 1 on the British Film Institute’s The 100 Greatest Films Of All Time
No. 9 on the American Film Institute’s Top 100 Greatest American Films Of All Time

You shouldn't keep souvenirs of a killing. You shouldn't have been that sentimental.

Named “Greatest Film of All Time” in 2012 by the British Film Institute’s Sight and Sound, this psychological thriller about fear and obsession hypnotizes audiences on the big screen. “It would be heresy to suggest that the greatness of ”Vertigo” is owed to anyone but Hitchcock, whose fingerprints cover every aspect of the production. But there is a second genius at work in ”Vertigo,…. (Bernard) Herrmann was an absolute master of the strange art of film scoring”. Alex Ross, NY Times   

”Vertigo” is a symphony for film and orchestra.” New Yorker
