Watch: Martin Scorsese & Kim Novak on S&S's "Greatest Film of All Time", 'Vertigo'

Yesterday we posted about “Vertigo” taking reign over “Citizen Kane” for the first time in 50 years on S&S’s “Top Ten Greatest Films of All Time List.”  And today, BFI posted two wonderful short clips recounting Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece.

The first clip showcases Kim Novak remembering her starring role in the film, while the second clip has Martin Scorsese explaining the influence “Vertigo” had on “Raging Bull.” What do you think…do these two help make the case for the importance of the film

I think your second paragraph is incorrect. Scorsese does NOT explain the influence of Vertigo on Raging Bull. He said he used the shower scene in Psycho as a template to some fight scenes in Raging Bull.


I submit that if Vertigo has replaced Citizen Kane as "the greatest film ever made" then the category has no meaning.
