Maybe my favorite Hitchcock movie.

Rear Window was a well acted, entertaining, and suspenseful thrill ride. The performances were top notch by Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly. The thing this film does so well is that, you do not know whether this man, that Stewart is convinced had killed his wife, is guilty of it or not. There is evidence given that he could have killed her, and that he didn't kill her, which makes for an enjoyable watch as the characters have to figure this out for themselves. This however, is not a masterpiece. At first, it took a long time to even get to the main plot, many filler scenes involving Stewart and Kelly haven't having relationship problems and whether or not he will marry her, and so on. The wife wad also unconvinced that Stewart was right ir not, and suddenly, boom, she is on his side and starts coming to her own conclusions. There were many other neighbors that took a lot of screen time that no purpose to the story at all. In conclusion, this is a well made thriller with a few minor issues.

The most suspenseful of all Hitchcock films, therefore, the most suspenseful of all time and it's told only by looking out of one window.

Definitely a film intended to digest w/o much thought, a sensation thrill ride, as a laid-up-due-to-injury photographer realizes his neighbor may have killed his wife. Start thinking and questions bubble up on their own: like why is a 20 year old babe with a guy twice her age? A guy who spends his time eyeballing his we-keep-our-windows-open neighbors, "but we don't notice a guy with binoculars watching us." And there are other problems, but ignor the obvious snafus and the suspense will electrify.

Essential viewing for all fans of the suspense genre. It is unusual in that most of the film is shot from the vantage-point of a window as Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly uncover a murder committed by a neighbor and get the necessary evidence to bring him in before he finds them out.

A classic in every sense. It might seem slow by today's standards but it all builds effectively. Iconic.

Unique Hitchcock film as the whole movie is set in one room and shoots out of one window to keep the audience confined as the main character is also confined as he has a broken leg making him vulnerable to voyeurism. Hitchcock also created the ultimate suspense as the camera artistically shows other neighbors and their lives except for one suspicious neighbor. Some romantic tension, suspense, mystery, and good character development.

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.

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.
