“Hitchcock made a career out of indulging our voyeuristic tendencies and he understood, better than any other filmmaker, how to excite them. I don’t think he ever did it more skilfully, or with more gleeful self-awareness, than in Rear Window.” – The Guardian
During an intense summer heatwave, a wheelchair-bound photographer (James Stewart) spies on his neighbours from his apartment window, and becomes convinced one of them has committed murder, despite the skepticism of his girlfriend (Grace Kelly).
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
