Trailer 434 of 894
Lumet's minimalist adaptation of the doomsday best seller is one of the director's most unappreciated works, overshadowed then and now by the comically apocalyptic Dr. Strangelove. Lumet creates an atmosphere of claustrophobic dread that intensified the jitters of its anxious post-Cuban Missile Crisis audience.

Wow - It's disappointing to see such negativity show up on this site. Brian, I love your commentaries and always look forward to them!!!
my friends were surprised that when we were talking about the movie, i told them that 4 people in the Robocop cast. Peter Weller and Ray Wise(S5) Paul McCrane(S6) and Kurtwood Smith(S7) all wound up of seasons of 24'
Wow, this Okko guy really needs to get a life. Such hurtful words...
. I don't watch Vertigo like any other movie...
Saw Vertigo for the first time when it was reissued in the '80s, as part of a batch of Hitchcock-owned titles that had been locked up in the vault for a couple of decades (also including Rope, The Trouble With Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much and Rear Window). The film blew my everlovin' teenage mind at the time, and I've been lucky enough to see it in a theatre a few times since then, and it never fails to suck me into its descent into madness...
I just watched The Anderson Tapes on DVD last week. Sidney Lumet directing Jack Lemmon in Death Wish boggles my mind...
