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

Just possibly the second most entertaining picture (after The 39 Steps) ever made by Alfred Hitchcock.

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

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

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 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.

Its appeal, which goes beyond that of other, equally masterly Hitchcock works, remains undiminished.

The clearest example of a Hitchcock movie that functions on dual levels: It's both mousetrap and abyss.

Although it's an intensely intimate film, there's something special about taking your seat in the theater as though you're pulling up right next to L.B. Jefferies (James Stewart).

Hitchcock combines technical and artistic skills in a manner that makes this an unusually good piece of murder mystery entertainment.

Since the 1954 Alfred Hitchcock classic is all about the voyeuristic instinct, the better the view, the more sensational the experience.

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.
