See Alfred Hitchcock’s tightly wound, single set masterpiece. Looser and more camera movement than the average Hitchcock, Rear Window is one of the first mainstream movies to talk about voyeurism and the audience’s culpability to what they watch.
Rewatched Rear Window last weekend. First time around, It wasn’t my favorite Hitchcock. This time, I enjoyed Grace Kelly and Jimmy Stewart’s relationship and the elaborate set and intricate camera movements.
Rear Window taps into a feeling we all have—We’re just observers in the horror show just outside the window. We feel helpless to do anything, but even as observers, there are actions we can take, however the world may bite back. Also, what are our privacy rights? (Answer: none)
Rear Window is worth a rewatch if you seen it it and if not, come on down to The Fiesta 13 and watch a great 4K copy.
