Not just one critic's choice, this 1958 Alfred Hitchcock film was recently voted the greatest film of all time in the prestigious Sight & Sound poll of hundreds of critics worldwide, replacing perennial No. 1 "Citizen Kane. " Not too shabby for a film that was dismissed by most observers on its original release. The story is set in San Francisco, and "Vertigo's" view of the place might be the most elegantly spooky vision of an American city ever put on film, especially in this rare 70mm screening.

"House M.D." Fox, Jan. 11 Episode: "The Down Low" The premise Mickey (Ethan Embry) is conducting a drug deal when he suddenly drops to the ground and hits his head. In the hospital, he experiences noise-induced vertigo and blacks out again from the noise of Dr. Gregory House's (Hugh Laurie's) cane tapping. House thinks this could all be due to cocaine, especially when Mickey has a seizure during a hearing test. Mickey insists on leaving the hospital but then returns with a high fever, subsequently undergoing a lumbar puncture that shows nothing amiss.

Hard-core cineastes have been a'twitter for the past 24 hours, on cinephile message boards but also on Twitter (hey, they use it too) about Sight & Sound's newly released once-a-decade critics poll. The British Film Institute magazine, in case you haven't heard, named Alfred Hitchcock's “Vertigo” its best film of all time, per the decennial survey it recently conducted with 846 critics.  Orson Welles' “Citizen Kane”? It  ended up in second place, a seemingly shocking turn considering it had won every one of these polls since 1962.

Before his ascension to Oscar-sanctioned respectability with "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "The Social Network," David Fincher was a cult filmmaker par excellence. "Se7en" (1995) and "Fight Club" (1999) quickly entered the fanboy pantheon, but it was the thriller he made in between, "The Game" (1997), that is perhaps most overdue for reappraisal. Widely dismissed (and not without reason) as a gimmicky prank at the time of its release, Fincher's third feature has just been issued on DVD and Blu-ray by the Criterion Collection.

Chris Kaman started Tuesday's game for one reason. There weren't enough healthy big men for the Lakers against New York. “It's been a long season. I can't wait till it's over,” Kaman said, adding a sigh before officially ending a 10-game sentence at the end of the Lakers' bench. He hasn't enjoyed the month of March. Or, really, this whole season. “The last conversation I've had with Coach [Mike D'Antoni] was in Portland,” three weeks ago, Kaman said. “I didn't really talk to him [Tuesday]

There's but one problem with welcoming Alfred Hitchcock back to the public eye: He's never really been away. But even if you grant that the director is a man for all of cinema's seasons, what is it about him that makes this moment in time so indisputably his? Within little more than a month, two dramatic films with Hitchcock as the protagonist will have graced screens: HBO's "The Girl" looks at the director (played by Toby Jones) during the making of "The Birds," while Fox Searchlight's "Hitchcock" goes back a few years earlier to examine the creation of "Psycho" with Anthony Hopkins in the title role.

He could have handled an injured knee, a sore groin or even a broken bone. Instead, for the Ducks' Jonas Hiller, this felt as if he was fighting off a clever, unknown opponent, floundering helplessly in the dark. Not only did he not know how he got to this place, but there also was no reasonable plan to get out of the quandary. Unfortunately, there was no fixed timetable to recover from vertigo, a difficult realization for a goal-oriented athlete, the man assigned to stop goals from being scored.

Just ask him, and Tommy Lasorda will tell you. "I believe," he's yelling at me like he would an umpire, and it's three hours before Monday night's game with the Giants and he's turning colors while screaming, "I believe, I believe.
