Obsession (1976)

A wealthy New Orleans businessman becomes obsessed with a young woman who resembles his deceased wife.

Masterful exercise in Hitchcock style clearly referencing Vertigo; atmosphere and tension are well are finely recreated, and the plot has some slight twists without being too complex.

Halliwell*: "Hitchcockian adventure with a few unwise attempts at seriousness, a la Don't Look Now. Generally entertaining, skilled and quite rewarding."

Maltin**1/2: "Viwers who don't remember VERTIGO might enjoy this rehash...Holds up until denouement."
