The Good Neighbor ★★★½

Engaging thriller which reworks the paranoid vibe of classic Hitchcock via modern surveillance technology and teenage multi-media platforms. I found the taut build-up superior to the actual reveal, as the plot shifts tone and direction, frequently sidestepping expectations. But this maintains tense intrigue throughout as it morphs from voyeurism suspense to tragic drama, gradually shedding secretive layers of storyline and motivation with the aid of non-linear inserts.
