The Green Fog

Guy Maddin and brothers Evan and Galen Johnson remake Vertigo, albeit with clips from other people’s films, in a treasurable magpie collage.

From Bullitt to Jagged Edge, The Conversation to Blue Jasmine, the city of San Francisco has been a gloriously dramatic backdrop to many essential movies. No one film, though, dominates its iconography like Vertigo, from the rooftops to the redwoods – and not forgetting that famous jetty alongside the Golden Gate Bridge. The Green Fog plunges into the archives to create a step-by-step facsimile of Hitchcock’s masterpiece, cutting together moments from a multitude of films that have ventured to the same landmarks. An homage to a city and a devout act of cine-worship, this is a truly delectable experiment.
