Alfred Hitchcock Verenigde Staten, 1954

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Rear Window

A magnificently controlled exercise in tension through immobilisation, spatial distancing and silence. It's a situation that occurs to me in many city hotels with a canvas of assumed stories behind the windows opposite. Add to this a stranded hero and the most delicate beauty you could not wish harm upon and it's a superb example of 'what would I do in that situation?'. If only more commercial cinema were as good.
