Critic Reviews of "Rear Window"New YorkerMarch 05, 2012
It's one of Alfred Hitchcock's inspired audience-participation films: watching it, you feel titillated, horrified, and, ultimately, purged.TIME MagazineApril 20, 2009
Just possibly the second most entertaining picture (after The 39 Steps) ever made by Alfred Hitchcock.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Of all Hitchcock's films, this is the one which most reveals the man.Houston ChronicleJuly 21, 2005
The deliciousness of watching the film as it's intended to be seen is that the big screen gives Rear Window back its claustrophobia.San Jose Mercury NewsMay 28, 2004
Don't resist the urge -- steal a peek at it now, and be reminded why Hitchcock is still without equal in the clammy thrills department.Village VoiceJanuary 01, 2000
Restored to its original Technicolor grandeur!Cinemaphile.orgMarch 26, 2014
Beneath pointed dialogue, perceptive character development and tense plot twists, the movie plays like a breakpoint in our journey towards complete voyeurism.Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
Hitchcock masterpiece stars peeping Jimmy Stewart.AskMen.comMay 29, 2010
In this brilliant movie about watching the neighbors, Alfred Hitchcock turns the lens on his audience. "We have become a race of Peeping Toms," notes one character not only commenting on Jeff's obsessive voyeurism but also that of the cinematic spectator.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)September 02, 2009
As close to 'perfect' as a film is likely to get.CinemaniaAugust 08, 2009
a taut and (verbally) jaunty thrillerReel Film ReviewsJuly 29, 2008
...the film surely remains one of the most memorable and downright essential examples of the slow-burn thriller genre.
