Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock (USA, 1954, 112 min.). Rear Window is an intriguing, brilliant, and macabre visual study of obsessive human curiosity and voyeurism. Immobile protagonist Jeff Jeffries (James Stewart), confined to his apartment while recovering from a broken leg, becomes fixated on a man whose mysterious behavior has Jefferies convinced that a murder has taken place. The experience is not so much like watching a movie, as like … well, spying on your neighbors. “Hitchcock traps us right from the first … And because Hitchcock makes us accomplices in Stewart’s voyeurism, we’re along for the ride” (Roger Ebert).
Rear Window will be screened on 35mm film.
