What’s observed through the rear window

March 21st

The idea of observation as opposed to really living these is a truly remarkable movie motif. Hitchcock allows the audience to feel as though they know the neighbors whom Jefferies is observing. I found it curious the way Stewart’s character reacted to entrance of Grace Kelly into his life. He was unconcerned frankly wanted her to leave. Stewart’s character was more involved with the outside world in which he was observing than making real and present relationships. I thought the suspense of watching Kelly’s character move about the room was truly ingenious. The moments in which the audience does not know where she is, or where the killer is left me on the edge of my seat. Hitch did a great job with the film.
