  • Rear Window 1954

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 23 Apr, 2014

    Jimmy Stewart and the always delightful, Grace Kelly, star in one of Hitchcock's greatest works, a film that's still as suspenseful today as it was 60 years ago. Certainly in my top ten Hitchcock films.

Cap 2, so very refreshing.

    Make mine Marvel.

    It's no secret that I was hugely disappointed the first time I watched Glazer's "snooze fest", I felt a second viewing was sorely required, and boy, am I glad I did.

    I'm not going to pretend I fully comprehend what was going on, I'm sure I missed many of the allegories, but I knew they were there, some more obvious than others, pertinent to our society and who we…
