Composed entirely of replications of scenes from Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, Best ditches the male gaze, putting a female spin on the iconic film’s imagery and psychological thrills. Shot on 35mm, Best functions as a music film, following the psychic fragmentation of its protagonist, Amani Starnes.
