Classic suspense thriller about a crippled man who watches his neighbors from his apartment window. What he see's at first is very innocent but still makes for a very entertaining movie. Then it turns serious.... what a movie.

Great movie. Slow in the beginning though.

A perfectly crafted, concise, engaging plot that subtly critiques how to act under uncertainty, as well as desires in a romantic relationship. The story is so precise and tight that it's not really a film to dissect and analyze, but I'd definitely watch it again to re-appreciate Hitchcock's ingenuity.

Loved everything about this wonderful film! Hitchcock is/was the master; when Jimmy Stewart is added to a great plot, you have a recipe for success.

Even at over 50 years old, this still felt like a fresh take on the classic thriller/suspense genre. More interesting were the character studies and the role of observation as an outsider. Felt like there was a deeper insight into how we view others as a society from the windows we are left to see into. Great buildup towards the ending and I'm looking forward to seeing more of Hitchcock.

Another timeless classic from Alfred Hitchcock.

Rear Window is an absolute classic that was light years ahead of its time. Hitchcock masters the 'show, don't tell' style of directing and every shot is beautiful (despite the fact that this was released in 1954). There isn't much speaking in parts of this film but the characters don't waste any words. The dialogue is great. As well as the main intriguing mystery, there are some great subplots in the other windows and it was interesting to watch them develop too. The romance was good between James Stewart and Grace Kelly, who are both spectacular along with the rest of the performances, which were good too. You also cannot ignore what a feat of directing it is to craft such a suspenseful thriller with the camera in one place the whole time.

I LOVED this movie. I don't care how old it is. The story was just beautiful and the characters had so much depth! This is easily my favorite movie of all time.

Prolly a perfect movie. Grace Kelly, Stewart and the whole cast are superb. If you don't know Hitchcock, this is prolly the best introduction.

Rear Window starts off a lot slower than the usual Hitchcock film but it picks up the pace dramatically as it goes on with excellent storytelling sprinkled with the expected suspense, resulting in one of the legendary director's finest works in his career.

Hitchcock's airtight production always shines above all else. The story is one of his weaker ones, but still manages to thrill and ponder nonetheless

Although I think it is given too much credit, it is a good movie in every respect. It's a fine mystery thriller with good acting, as always, from James Stewart. It's just not my favorite from Alfred Hitchcock, and I wouldn't call it one of his best. (First viewing - 11/30/2009)

One of Hitchcock's most suspenseful films!
