Two years of work
4 July 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the only featurette on the DVD of Vertigo. It consists of interviews with the duo who were in charge of the restoration(and footage of them working on it, as well as storyboards, posters and shots of the dubbing notes and such), Scorsese(whose fascination with the director is readily apparent in his own movies, and he has important things to say about this picture) and the surviving crew and cast, some of whom also contributed to the great commentary track. Everyone has something to share, if, as others have noted, the 2 who gave us an opportunity to watch this in its proper form again are dreadfully boring. This is very informative, as they go into sets, costumes, the pre-production process and how personal it was for Alfred, and how he went about it. It is a love-fest for both him and the film, however, which gets a little annoying(at points in this, every other word is "revolutionary" or "amazing"... I just think it's more interesting to hear *why* they deem it so, anyone can drop loaded adjectives), and they ignore the elephant in the room(the considerable age difference between the two leads, Stewart not particularly portraying a similar role elsewhere), instead of addressing them(middle-aged men are attracted to young women and sometimes the opposite is true too, and James is convincing and takes us by surprise by playing against type, are my arguments, respectively). In any event, this is good. I recommend it to any fan(note that this documentary contains spoilers) of the masterpiece or the man behind it. 7/10
