Rear Window (1954)

As for tonight we have a great thriller from Alfred Hitchcock. So just from that, it makes it a good movie, worth your time. For those who never heard of it, the plot is somewhat simple: a photographer, bound to the wheelchair takes time to watch his neighbors, and once he sees something that he claims to be a murder, and that is what he tries to prove. Heard that ? Seen something like that on Simpsons ? yeah...
 So lets just start with minor fun things here. The point of view is always the room where the photographer looks through, so when others are shown, you can't hear what they say. You know what that makes ? No, not bunnies. That makes silent-mini movies. And those people in there are so colorful, each has it's own story, has it's own stereotype.. sort of...
 As for the main story, it really puls you in and makes you think. You don't know a lot there, so you start making your own guess what could have happened , what is right and what is wrong. You start playing a detective , just as the main character, and as a side note, that is really good. Also it messes with you. First you should be certain that it did happen, then you know for sure that it didn't, than you have no clue where you live anymore. That mind play rocks. Maybe that's what helps building the tension. That great and miraculous thing that this movies is socked in. I mean, there are some points where you could kill someone from the amount of tension.
 This is classic , you should see it, just because you should.

no pictures this time because of penienie.
