Rear View Window is about a world-class photographer who was injured in the line of duty and bound to a wheelchair and a cast on his leg. So, for entertainment of being stuck indoor, he begun to be an observer of his neighbours' daily activities through his window. In one of the occasion, he believed that one of his neighbour had murdered his wife and so began to do a stake-out on the guy and his movements for proof that the murder was real.
This movie has joined my list of all time favourite movies because of the suspense I felt throughout the movie and the way the plot is arranged is so interesting. You know there are some movies where you can predict what is going to happen in the end. Well, in this movie, you know what will happen but you are not confident if it will really happen the way as expected.
For a movie done in 1954, this is a very good one especially the set apart from the entertaining performances of the James Stewart and Grace Kelly. Through watching the movie, you will know that it is a set but that is one freaking huge set as tall as 3 or 4 storeys high.. and having 5 blocks of apartment building was mind-blowing of the scale used.
A movie that is a must to watch!
