Kehr, back when I used to read him religiously in the Chicago Reader, was always clever in his wording without being gimmicky, and even more brilliant in the content that wording conveyed. He was a film scholar posing as a newspaper critic, and as such, so outshined anything virtually anyone else had to say about film (at least those writing in periodicals), that I would have gladly worked as his assistant for virtually nothing in those days.
As for his assessment of Vertigo, I believe unequivocally that nothing he says is overstatement; Vertigo is a transcendant experience, astoundingly dense in poetic form and profundity of meaning. I have seen it over 30 times, and still notice things I never picked up before. And it never fails to leave me emotionally drained as the Paramount logo reappears after the final frames.
