Easily one of Hitchcock's most intriguingly crafted films, Vertigo displays the master director in peak form. Filled with memorable and iconic moments like the unique dolly zoom effect or the kiss which the camera and music turn into a miraculously orgasmic sequence, deeper exploration into Vertigo supports the way that Hitchcock built these unique technical opportunities into a narrative and stylistic web that intentionally traps the viewers right where he wants them. Film professor Robert Cumbow returns to lead our six-hour appreciation of the craft that made Hitch the Master of (more than just) Suspense.

About the Facilitator
About Cinema Dissection
Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Inspired by Roger Ebert's annual Cinema Interruptus in Boulder, CO, attendees will participate with a facilitator in a six hour scene-by-scene, and sometimes shot-by-shot, deconstruction of the featured film. While the facilitator will certainly share their thoughts, anyone in the audience may call out 'Stop' and either ask a question of the group or make an observation around a certain shot or moment in the film.
