Cinema: Rear Window

"This is the scene of a crime. A crime of passion, filmed in a way you have never seen before and as no one else would dare attempt but the screen's master of suspense." 

Photographer Jeffries is home-bound for the summer, his leg in a plaster cast. Will he solve the crime he thinks he's witnessed just with the power of his mind? 

"Rear Window lovingly invests in suspense all through the film, banking it in our memory, so that when the final payoff arrives, the whole film has been the thriller equivalent of foreplay." Chicago Sun-Times

Rear Window, Alfred Hitchcock, 1954 (112 mins)
