Yesterday I watched Rear Window on tv (not once but twice with the rerun at night)!
The few bits of interior we get to see of (Jeff) the protagonist's apartment, the view we get of the apartment buildings AND the small amount of what we can see of the neighbour's apartments around him is something that has alwas fascinated me about this movie.
Before I found out it was all fake, as a child I wished I could live in "Jeff's" tiny apartment. I adored that panorama front.
Just a few days ago I mentioned to someone on my f-list, that I enjoy people-watching (in retro-spect it sounds a bit creepy even to myself whenever I mention that) and I believe this is what essentially makes me like this movie.
But I guess, that's what makes most people enjoy this movie, too. The idea, that someone watches in on people's most intimate moments of daily life without their knowledge nor their consent (And then seeing something that wasn't meant for a stranger to observe, too).
And the actors/actresses were all so awesome, you don't have Stars like that anymore.
I wonder, what do you think of this Hitchcock classic?
Do yu prefer the b&w or the coloured version.
P.S.: Last time I watched 'Rear Window' I watched it with my father, it's been almost 2 years ago on the day. I wish he was here, we could have made fun of the last scene together.
