Alfred Hitchcock United States, 1954

Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Rear Window

Setting aside the metafictional angle on film and the comment on the seedy underbelly of 50s America, it's just a really fun film in its own right. Setting aside one or two dated comments on femininity, I especially loved Grace Kelley as an active, witty, daring dame wanting to break out of the role the male lead is trying to constrain her to. Would definitely rewatch this one, given the chance.
