Hitchcock's greatest masterpiece...

"We've become a race of Peeping Toms. What people ought to do is get outside their own house and look in for a change. Yes sir. How's that for a bit of homespun philosophy?"

Rear Window is an undemanding lesson in accomplishing perfection from simplicity. This classic film was the creation of Alfred Hitchcock during one of his last grand creative spells. In the years to follow, the ... read more

''Intelligence. Nothing has caused the human race so much trouble as intelligence.''

Through his rear window and the eye of his powerful camera he watched a great city tell on itself, expose its cheating ways...and Murder!

It is rather surprising that, even though I am a massive movie buff and even though I have seen nearly 40 movies directed by Alfred Hitchcock (more than any other director), somehow, I still hadn’t watch this one which obviously belongs to his numerous classics. Well, even though I thoroughly enjoyed it, I must admit it, I thought I was slightly disappointing. The point is that I wanted to watch... read more

Description: The weather is getting hotter, and photographer Jefferies (Jimmy Stewart) is stuck in his apartment with a broken leg and nothing to do--that is, nothing to do but spy on his neighbors through their open windows across the way in the apartment complex. There's an attractive and scantily clad dancer, a songwriter, a lonely woman, and the Thorwalds, a bickering couple, among others. But when Mrs. Thorwald disappears, Jefferies is sure that something's wrong. Soon, despite the warnings of his girlfriend, Lisa (Grace Kelly), and his motherly nurse, Stella (Thelma Ritter), Jefferies has out his binoculars and telephoto lens and is st ... (more)

Movie Reviews (651-700) (50 movies items)

" The ultimate voyeur movie. Grace Kelly was at the height of her career as the girlfriend of (always excellent) James Stewart who observe a possible murder by his neighbor. Hitchcock has probably never been better with this film where every window tells different stories and he has gotten the film shot and edited marvelously. One of the true greats of American cinema. It is nothing here to complain about and my eyes are fixed constantly on the screen. If ever a word should be used called "master"

Exploring Hitchcock (7/12-7/25) (14 movies items)

"Like Vertigo I've never been too big on this film, until this rewatch. And other than Vertigo it's left the biggest impact on me, due to its dramatic subtlety which almost gives it an enhanced quality when recollected and rewatched in part. It's not a film that immediately impresses; rather you witness the story and think about its thematic implications. It's definitely Hithcock's quietest film, at least in terms of confrontational drama and intensity, but it's actually a more genuinely delightf"
