Hoping the next installments have links to downloadable versions right from the start.

Well, I was disappointed. I think the essayist does have interesting things to say about the film, but the format was distracting. Just my opinion, your mileage may vary. Maybe a transcript will be posted, which I will eagerly read.

Brilliant! Disagree with Groovymarlin. The visual flow and tone of the film help you understand and experience Vertigo through a new visual landscape. Isn't that the whole point of this exercise in film criticism and education. Made me want to "resee" Vertigo.

I suspect you're not the audience.

Was there something wrong with your encoding, or did you deliberately blur all the images with noise and artifacts? Either way, it was so annoying I got halfway through and gave up. It's great if you have something to say, but try to say it without alienating your audience, huh?
