    I am of the opinion that Stewart's head spinning scene in Vertigo looks extremely cheesy like Jay Leno's Beyondo. Does anybody think this way?

    I don't. That was the state of special effects at the time, and I think it gives the film a kind of pop-art personality as well.

    I like it too. Still didn't stop me from laughing my ass off when I saw Faith No More 's 'Last Cup of Sorrow' video. The whole thing is in a 'Vertigo' style, and one bit recreates that scene. The lead singer is there instead of Jimmy Stewart, and there's a shrunken-down janitor superimposed on his head - combing that huge tuft of hair with a broom! [​IMG]

    I don't agree. As someone who has occasional bouts of Vertigo, I believe this scene accurately reflects what I have experienced! No kidding. [​IMG]
