Martin Scorsesese justifica en un article a The New York Review of Books la selecció de Vertigo com la millor pel.lícula de tots els temps a l’última votació de Sight & Sound. Master Scorsese justifica també el valor cultural del cinema:

“Just as we’ve learned to take pride in our poets and writers, in jazz and the blues, we need to take pride in our cinema, our great [North]American art form. Granted, we weren’t the only ones who invented the movies. We certainly weren’t the only ones who made great films in the twentieth century, but to a large extent the art of cinema and its development have been linked to us, to our country. That’s a big responsibility. And we need to say to ourselves that the moment has come when we have to treat every last moving image as reverently and respectfully as the oldest book in the Library of Congress.”
