David Keyes

Beneath pointed dialogue, perceptive character development and tense plot twists, the movie plays like a breakpoint in our journey towards complete voyeurism.

It's one of Alfred Hitchcock's inspired audience-participation films: watching it, you feel titillated, horrified, and, ultimately, purged.

Hitchcock masterpiece stars peeping Jimmy Stewart.

December 15, 2010

In this brilliant movie about watching the neighbors, Alfred Hitchcock turns the lens on his audience. "We have become a race of Peeping Toms," notes one character not only commenting on Jeff's obsessive voyeurism but also that of the cinematic spectator.

As close to 'perfect' as a film is likely to get.

Of all Hitchcock's films, this is the one which most reveals the man.

An early ad summed up one of the film's enduring appeals: If you don't experience delicious terror, then pinch yourself--you're most probably dead.

The deliciousness of watching the film as it's intended to be seen is that the big screen gives Rear Window back its claustrophobia.

Alfred Hitchcock's answer to why he makes films and perhaps his darkest one, both as a romance and as a thriller.

Don't resist the urge -- steal a peek at it now, and be reminded why Hitchcock is still without equal in the clammy thrills department.

In the hands of a lesser talent, this might have become a self-conscious stunt, but in Hitchcock's it has the tightly wound perfection of a flawless sonnet or sonata.
