2/18- Vertigo (1958)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Arugably one of the greatest films of all time and Hitchcock's masterpiece. What makes Vertigo so great(and maybe the greatest) is the plot, which defies description in many ways.  James Stewart plays John “Scottie” Ferguson, who retires from the police force after an accident leaves him with a fear of heights and the titular affliction of vertigo, a false sense of spinning and falling when looking down from those heights.  An acquaintance named Gavin Elster hires Scottie, now a private eye, to follow his wife Madeline (played by Kim Novak) and find out why she’s acting so strangely.  From there on, you get classic Hitchcock—suspense, mystery, romance, all wrapped around twisted human psychology and one hell of a ride.


2/25- Fargo (1996)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Fargo is a brilliant film, packed with disturbing scenes sprinkled with comedy, a storyline brimming with fascinating characters (that will leave you wanting to know so much more about them and how they’ve come to the situation they’re in). Fargo‘s a dark film, but is incredibly rich in heart and storytelling; it’s a film that grips you from the moment it opens with Carter Burwell’s scoring and the fictional prelude implying that it’s based on true events. It’s ludicrous, it’s brilliant, and it hurls you back into the 1990s. Fargo isn’t a film to miss- it's one of the Coen brother's best, and that is saying something.
