Retro is a regular feature highlighting the classics, whether that be an original trailer, poster, still image or classic scene.

As you no doubt have read by now Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1958 film Vertigo has unseated Citizen Kane after five decades as the greatest film of all time in Sight & Sound’s critics poll. Having just recently rewatched the film it’s not difficult to see why it’s finally found its way to the top spot.

In celebration of Vertigo’s now monumental standing within the film world I have decided to highlight, as part of our Retro feature, the dizzying dream sequence found in the film. A unique, standalone signature sequence to add to the Hitch list alongside the shower scene in Psycho (to name but one), it’s truly a wonder to behold.
