Vertigo ★★½

I really wanted to like this but it’s bogged down by pointless scenes and taking too much time when a faster pace would have benefited the film. The music was great and it felt quite aesthetically pleasing but it just lacks the substance and engagement with its premise to fully work. The opening ending credits and scene were amazing and set things up for a great film that it could have been. It’s a shame because Psycho and North by Northwest were great but I just couldn’t connect with this one.
