TGB Breakdown Ep 9: Hitchcock's Vertigo (Guest: West Anthony)

TGB Breakdown Ep 9: Hitchcock's Vertigo

On this episode of The Golden Briefcase Breakdown, hosts Tim & Jeremy are joined by guest West Anthony from The AuteurCast (and Ep #134), for an extremely spoiler-filled discussion on the legendary Alfred Hitchcock's mystery classic Vertigo, from 1958, starring Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. The main purpose of Breakdown episodes is to to ponder, discuss and challenge the films that we feel often need more than just a simple review. We breakdown the film to discuss plots and theories in order to better understand the director's vision and hopefully challenge our listeners at home to re-evaluate the way they watch cinema.

Extra episodes of TGB Breakdown will be arriving about every month, and will appear here in addition to all of our regular weekly Golden Briefcase episodes. Beware - every episode of TGB Breakdown will contain SPOILERS for the film in discussion (this one about Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo). You've been WARNED!
