      Steve D Takes too long to get going and when it does it is a poor retread of the original. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Amy L The version they actually showed was the original Hitchcock version, not the 1998 version. We still enjoyed it, just wasn't what we expected (or was advertised). Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 10/04/20 Full Review Mary Interesting and suspenseful Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/20 Full Review Cynthia Very suspenseful! Loved the actors and scenery!

      Adam Kempenaar Filmspotting We assume that it’s Jeff looking at all those people [in the opening shot], but it’s not. It’s us. We are the first voyeurs. Rated: 5/5 Feb 9, 2024 Full Review Wesley Lovell Cinema Sight Rear Window is a fascinating film whose tension and trappings enrapture the audience, giving them feelings of dread, inevitability, and relief in a seemingly compact 112-minute package.
