Could the restorers be any less interesting?
11 August 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This documentary is incredibly informative, both about the movie Vertigo and the restoration in 1996. Two small complaints:

  • The restorers are some of the most unitnteresting people on the face of


the earth.
  • The use of the spiral effect in the opening sequence of the documentary


is just way too cheap of a rip-off of the original movie. It was not necessary at all. All those small things a side, this is required viewing for any Hitchcock buff or any lover of movies.
