Alfred Hitchcock United States, 1954

Aaron C Jones's rating of the film Rear Window

Probably the Hitchcock film I've seen the most times. I have some problems with the film's gender politics, especially the fact that Lisa practically has to jump through flaming hoops to earn Jeff's attentions. It's a capsule of the time it came from. I suppose it's even progressive by the standards of its era, due to the implied class divide that Jefferies and Lisa cross to even be together in the first place.
