200+ Word Reviews: Rear Window

Rear Window

“What do you think?”
Grace Kelly In Rear Window

I think that this is by far one of the most brilliant written and directed movies of all time.

In Rear Window we meet L.B. "Jeff" Jefferies (James Stewart) a photographer confined to a wheel chair. L.B. when he's not busy wining and dining with his would be girlfriend Lisa Carol Fremont (Grace Kelly) he's busy watching/spying on his apartment dwelling neighbors. One of whom he believes has committed a murder. Hitchcock in Rear Window went and created a tiny world with in a much larger world and from the very beginning to the very end the viewer is drawn into this world and the memorable characters within it.

Other then that basic setup there's little more I can say about this movie to truly do it justice. Rear Window 5 out of 4 stars and three thumbs up a timeless classic. So if you’re a movie lover or a movie nerd and have not seen Rear Window do yourself a big favor and instead of adding it to your to see list add it to the top of your next to see list and make sure to take a look at it through a pair of binoculars or a photo camera with a ver…ok that’s a bit much just see it!
