Vertiginous Variations on Vertigo
“Vertiginous Variations on Vertigo is the third of a trilogy of films I’ve made in relation to Hitchcock’s films, the first two being Variations on Guilt and Innocence in 39 Steps, 2013, which investigates The 39 Steps; and Mother and Son; or, That Obscure Object of Desire (Scenes from an Anamorphic Double Feature), 2006, which views Sokurov’s Mother and Son from the standpoint of Psycho. The film composes a variant of Hitchcock’s Vertigo in which, among other things, Scottie’s drive for reenactment and repetition is not satisfied once he has made Judy look exactly like the beloved he lost, Madeleine.” – Jalal Toufic
