So for Vertigo, I want to talk about the image system of mirrors, as said in the lecture, there is a shift in Judy’s attitude when she looks at herself in the mirror. Is there any other passages that would indicate or confirm that the mirror represents the lack of liberty or the dependence to another character ?
Also, I’d like to talk about the opening scene, with the eye of the woman and the spirals that we see. It gives the audience from the first few minutes the idea of dizziness and uneasiness that the characters feel the whole movie. Who do you think the woman is ? is it a representation of the woman as the looker or the looked-at ? Could we associate her with any character or should it represent women in general? Is there any connection /link we can draw between the dizziness and women ?
