Summer of Hitchcock: Vertigo
Scottie follows her around until she jumps into San Francisco Bay. After he rescues her, he falls head over heels for her. That's when all the trouble starts.
Okay, why does Scottie love Madeleine? Is it because she's beautiful and sophisticated? I think it must be a hero complex. She's damaged. She's messed up. He must have her. I was so fed up with him- especially the hairdresser and clothes part at the end. Creepy! I thought Midge was a much better choice. Poor Midge. Nice girls finish last. She could do better anyway.
Vertigo was meh for me. I wasn't attached to the main characters. Maybe that was it for me. I still love Hitchcock but not this one.
