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)

Don't quite get the fuss about this. It's ok, but didn't really grab my attention

Muy divertida, diálogos ingeniosos. Pasa el desenlace y no me siento realizado, quiero que me dejen dar un vistazo a las evidencias. Me echan en cara que yo igual soy un voyeur, un "peeping tom" y me bajan las persianas, pero insisto en que mostrar un rato las evidencias reforzaría la impresión criminal del asesino. Uno como que se resiste a dar por resuelta la situación, puede que haya un malentendido después de todo. Jeff se retuerce de angustia mientras lo ve golpear a Lisa, impotente desde su silla de ruedas... junto a la enfermera? Cómo es que no sale ella volando a derribar la puerta y echársele encima. 8/10

Should you find yourself peeping at the neighbours windows, be sure to look closely and have a camera at hand. Because with this scenario, Hitchcock delves deep into 'minding your business' and know when to enact on that fact murder has taken place.

No one seems to use curtains in this neighbourhood. Another fine Hitchcock movie, who does a fabulous job of keeping interest while the plot slowly develops in the first half of the film.

Suspenseful, smart and fun!

Rear Window is breathtaking. Jimmy Stewart is perfect and Grace Kelly is hypnotic. Together they lead us down the most gut wrenching rabbit hole.

De voyeuristiska dragen hos människan är synnerligen nödvändig. Bakgårdsmiljön med tegelväggar är vackert. En av Hitchcocks bästa!
