"Was Hitchcock merely a master of suspense, or as his French critics believed, also a master of ideas? This volume of stimulating, philosophically inclined interpretations of his magnificent film Vertigo proves that the French were right." - Richard Allen, New York University, USA
"Vertigo is arguably Hitchcock's masterpiece. This valuable collection helps reveal the many respects in which it is also his most philosophically engaging film." - Paul Muench, University of Montana, USA
