Is Vertigo One of the Best Movies Ever?

VertigoAccording to critics, Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo is one of the best movies ever made. If you have never seen Vertigo, or if you would like to watch it again, we're showing it at Carnegie-Stout Public Library on Thursday, August 2, 2007 at 6 p.m.

Which movie do you think is the best ever made? To let us know which movie you would pick and why, fill out the comment form below.


  1. I love “Vertigo,” but as a Bay Area native now living in Dubuque exile, I have trouble watching “Vertigo” because it makes me homesick.

    My “best movie” choice seems to change every week. This week? Akira Kurosawa’s “Shichinin no Samurai (Seven Samurai)” from 1954.

  2. "The Wizard of Oz",
    I feel is the best movie ever made. When I was age 5 it was the characters' looks in the film, (I never realized the witch had a green face until my sister took me to a picture show since we had a black & white televison).
    At age 15 I think it was the bonding of friendship of the characters.
    As an adult I think it is the thought that as I travel through life, it's the contentment from a stable home life. "There's no place like home!"

  3. I would like to suggest "Days of Wine and Roses". It deals with the social problem of alcoholism. Similar to "Hours" which dealt with mental illness. It stars Jack Lemmon and Lee Remick.
