Rear Window 1954 PG

112 mins USA Director. Alfred Hitchcock

James Stewart spots something fishy going in the apartment across the courtyard, in Alfred Hitchcock’s masterly thriller. Not just a smart and spellbinding suspense thriller, but also a wry comment on the voyeuristic pleasures of cinema itself, Rear Window is a multi-layered delight and a genuine Hollywood masterpiece.
