      Most love Vertigo, but to my mind, Rear Window tops every other thriller created by the master of the genre, Alfred Hitchcock. He plays the audience like an organ, making us laugh, worry, clap, and scream at his command. And it’s never less than thoroughly entertaining. But Rear Window is more than just entertainment. As James Stewart turns.   Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window is one of the icons of American filmmaking. A perfect example of Hollywood cinema at its best, it is an engaging piece of entertainment as well as a fascinating meditation on the nature of the film itself. A suspense thriller about a chair-bound observer who Author: John Belton.

      Alfred Hitchcock My favourite Hitchcock: Rear Window Hitchcock made a career out of indulging our voyeuristic tendencies, and he never excited them more skilfully, or with more gleeful self Author: Killian Fox.   Beginnings: Alfred Hitchcock frequently began his movies with a scene that introduces the viewer to both character and setting in an understated, economical way. The opening scene of Rear Window is perhaps the best opening of any Hitchcock film. After the curtains rise, Hitchcock does a slow counterclockwise pan of the courtyard.

    Spies like us. *** SPOILER ALERT *** By the time of Rear Window’s release in September of , the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, had directed over 40 features and was very much in the tail end of his long and illustrious career in that he would only direct a further 13 theatrical films. Yet it is in this period, from the mid ’s onwards, where he was arguably at his most. Rear Window flirts with the romance genre as well, in the person of the lovely Lisa. In between playing Jeff's Gal Friday and trying to get him into the sack, she and Jeff talk about the differences between them, the challenges to being together, and the fact that they really do make a great couple.
