Hitchcock yet again proves the pleasure of perversity in Rear Window, a younger sibling to Vertigo. Each frame sizzles with festering guilt and the burning hot heatwave sun. The film's grandiose set becomes an MC Escher type labyrinth where each nook and cranny has a story. But should you look in?
The dialogue cracks like a whip and the tension builds steadily, waiting to pounce. It's a truly great film which all should see.
