Rear Window lovingly invests in suspense all through the film, banking it in our memory, so that when the final payoff arrives, the whole film has been the thriller equivalent of foreplay.

Restored Hitchcock thriller charms, chills and sparkles.

November 7, 2002

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.

In an impressive oeuvre, Rear Window is arguably the most exquisitely handcrafted feature, because Hitchcock mastered the spatial as well as behavioral coordinates of his chosen universe inch by inch.

Belatedly, I'm nominating a film from 1954 as the best picture of 2000.

Not only is Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window one of his best pictures, it's one of the best films ever made altogether.

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