4 out of 10 Rear Window
Niall from Dublin, 14 Jul 2011
Alfred Hitchcock again delivers a film which is now seen as one of the best of all time (IMDb Top 250) . The Story centres around wheelchair - bound L.B "Jeff" Jefferies ( James Stewart) and his should-be-wife Lisa Fremont. Jeff in confined in his Greenwich Village Apartment with only his rear window to keep him occupied. He then notices his neighbour, Lars Thorwald and he bedridden wife . After a period he notices that she is not there anymore and begans to become suspicious .Although it has some predictable moments, this film is one of Hitchcocks finest and definitely one not to be missed

4 out of 10 Rear Window
Jennifer from Donegal, 04 Dec 2009
Classic Hitchcock without the horror of 'The birds' but a fine performance from James Stewart as the injured photographer who is taking a lot of interest in his neighbours' comings and goings.When he suspect a guy across the way of murdering his wife,is it just his fanciful imagination or is he right?How can he prove it? This film may seem a little tame by today's standards but on the other hand how would any of react if someone told us they'd seen a murder?

3.5 out of 10 Sloooooooooooooooooooooooow
Frank from Dublin, 09 Apr 2007
Good premise, good dialogue, good cinematography for its time. But by God is it slow. They summed it all up in one parody episode of the Simpsons, but this just drags on and on. And there are a lot of untied loose ends.

4 out of 10 Good Hitchcock
David from Dublin, 14 Jul 2008
Good movie with a nice plot, interesting concept and fun follow through. Good tensions at times but not afraid to use humour or keep you guessing.

There is a good reason why this is seen as a classic. If you haven't seen it, treat yourself.

What's it about....
Alfred Hitchcock amply demonstrates why he's been called "The Master of Suspense" with this both witty and macabre tale of voyeurism and murder starring two of cinema's all-time favourites, James Stewart and Grace Kelly. The weather is getting hotter, and photographer L.B. Jefferies (James Stewart) is stuck in his apartment with a broken leg and nothing to do--that is, nothing to do but spy on his neighbours through their open windows across the way in the apartment complex....
