Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Jack Gramm (Al Pacino) testifies at the trial of suspected serial murderer Jon Forster (Neal McDonough), dubbed "The Seattle Slayer" by police. Gramm's testimony and expert psychiatric opinion is crucial to help convict Forster of the murder of Joanie Coates, who was drugged with halothane, hung upside down, and raped and tortured after the killer broke into her home. After receiving his conviction by the jury, Forster taunts Gramm, saying "Tick- tock, Doc."
Nine years later, as Forster's execution date approaches, several similar torture murders with very similar modi operandi occur. Gramm is questioned by a lawyer from the Attorney General's office as well as FBI Special Agent Frank Parks (William Forsythe) about his connection to the latest victim, Dale Morris, a former psychology student of Gramm's with whom he was at a party the night before, just hours before her death. On the way to his class, Gramm receives a phone call from someone using software to distort their voice, threatening he has 88 minutes to live. He later reports the call to his secretary Shelly (Amy Brenneman) and has her put together a risk assessment profile of potential perpetrators.
Gramm receives another threatening phone call while teaching and becomes suspicious of his students, particularly Mike Stempt (Benjamin McKenzie). The Dean of students, Carol Johnson (Deborah Kara Unger), interrupts the class to evacuate the building due to a bomb threat called in. As he evacuates the lecture hall, Gramm finds a written threat on the overhead projector in the classroom as well as on his car, which has been vandalized in the parking garage. Gramm then is met by his teaching assistant Kim Cummings (Alicia Witt) who offers to help him find the person that's been targeting him. In the stairwell of the parking garage, Gramm comes upon one of his students, Lauren Douglas (Leelee Sobieski), attacked by an unknown assailant and reports the assault to Campus Security.
Gramm and Kim go to his condo where a package has been delivered. Lauren Douglas drops by with the risk assessment of people who may want to kill him that he had asked Shelly to fax to his home. The package contains an old audio tape of his kid-sister, Katie, begging for her life and her subsequent murder. Gramm later explains she was killed several years ago when he left her alone in his apartment while he attended an important meeting; the crime took exactly 88 minutes. As Gramm determines someone had accessed his secure files to obtain the audio tape, suddenly Kim's ex-husband, Guy LaForge (Stephen Moyer), shows up with a gun but is shot and killed from behind by an unknown person wearing a motorcycle helmet and leather protective gear. The shooter flees through the crowd outside after a fire alarm is triggered in the building.
Next, Gramm and Kim visit Sara Pollard (Leah Cairns), the woman Gramm was with the night before, but find her murdered in her apartment with evidence incriminating Gramm. Carol calls Gramm and makes comments suggesting that she is the killer and demands Gramm meet her at his office. Shelly arrives at Sara's apartment and advises Gramm she suspects Lauren was the one who stole the audio tape of Gramm's sister's death. Kim disappears from the apartment and later calls Gramm with a threat similar to Carol's, also demanding he meet her at the office.
Through prison visitation records, Gramm deduces that Forster's appeals attorney, "Lydia Doherty" is actually Lauren using a pseudonym, and surmises she set up the frame on orders from Forster from jail. Kim calls again instructing Gramm to come to another nearby location on campus where he finds Carol has been hung over a seventh floor balcony and Kim is tied up and gagged, held at gun point by Lauren. Lauren threatens Gramm and forces him to "confess" on tape that he gave false testimony at Forster's trial. Special Agent Parks arrives and shoots Lauren, causing both Carol and Lauren to fall from the balcony. Gramm saves Carol, but Lauren comes loose and plummets to her death. When Forster calls asking to speak with Lauren, Gramm informs him Lauren is dead, the set up is over. He then quips "Tick tock, tick tock, you got 12 hours to live." He then hurls the phone into the atrium, where it strikes the ground floor and shatters.

[edit]Filming locations
The university scenes in the film were shot at the University of British Columbia (UBC) near Vancouver, which stood in for a fictional Northwest Washington University. It attracted much attention on campus (mainly due to Pacino's presence in the film) and filming was interrupted repeatedly because of it. This also could have been because many integral scenes were filmed in the busiest areas of campus during peak class hours. It was common for students to exit buildings after class only to walk into a shooting location.
The Canadian location is much in evidence when Pacino enters a cab early in the film, with a Shoppers Drug Mart store and a Canada Post mailbox in the background. The cab passes a "licenced" establishment. In the middle of the movie there's a scene with a Roots Canada store in the background.

[edit]Box office performance
In its opening weekend, the film grossed $6,957,216 in 2,168 theaters in the United States and Canada, ranking fourth at the box office and averaging $3,209 per theater. In its second weekend, the film grossed $3,593,890 and fell to number eight at the box office.[7] The film's worldwide gross is $32,593,385 with $17,213,467 from the US and Canadian box office and $15,379,918 from the rest of the world.

Vertigo (1958) - trailers

Trailers for Vertigo (1958)...



Trailer 1

(c) Universal Studios
(voice)   Vertigo – a feeling of dizziness... a swimming in the head...
          figuratively a state in which all things seem to be engulfed
          in a whirlpool of terror. As created by Alfred Hitchcock in
          the story that gives new meaning to the word suspense.

caption:  KIM NOVAK

(Novak)   I don't wanna die. There's someone inside me and she says I
          must die. Oh Scottie, don't let me go.

(voice)   A beautiful girl haunted by the desperate unexplainable urge
          to destroy herself. A man possessed by the paralysing vertigo
          that made him afraid of high places.

(Geddes)  Easy now.
(Stewart) I know, I know, it's a cinch. Here, I look up, I look down,
          I look up, I look...

(voice)   What was the strange attraction that brought these two
          together in spite of the dark forces that tore them apart?
          The spectre from the past that drew her to the ancient
          headstone in the mission graveyard. The compulsion that drove
          her relentlessly to the point of no return. The story of a
          love so powerful it broke down all barriers between past and
          present, between life and death. Between the golden girl in
          the dark tower and the tawdry redhead that he tried to remake
          in her image.

(Novak)   If I let you change me, will that do it? If I do what you tell
          me, will you love me?
(Stewart) Yes.
(Novak)   Alright, then I'll do it. I don't care anymore about me.

(Novak)   I didn't jump, I didn't jump, I fell, you told me I fell.

Ilusionismo Quadrilátero


* Victor Nogueira .
Ele há um tempo p’ra tudo na vida
Cantando hora, minuto, segundo;
Por isso sempre existe uma saída
Enquanto nós estivermos neste mundo.
Há um tempo para não fenecer
Há mar, sol, luar e aves com astros
Há uma hora p'ra amar ou morrer
E tempo para não se ficar de rastos.
P'ra isso e' preciso sabedoria
Em busca dum bom momento, oportuno,
Com ar, bom vinho, pão e cantoria,
Sem se confundir a nuvem com Juno.
