Storyline

While doing a story on the intrusion of surreptitious surveillance in peoples' private lives, a television reporter rents some surveillance equipment to get a feel for what it's like to spy on people. When he finishes his report, he returns to the equipment rental store to discover that he was too late and the store is closed, so he'll have to keep the equipment for another day. As a lark he sets up the equipment to "spy" on the residents of a nearby building, but soon finds himself caught up in the dark world of voyeurism, begins to descend further and further into that world and realizes that it is becoming a disturbing obsession with him.

Redundant and pointless ........................
12 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This very shallow study of voyeurism, gets progressively more tiresome with each passing minute. Extreme closeups of blurred images permeate the film. There is zero character development, and very little dialog. A news reporter doing a story on the surveillance industry becomes addicted to spying on sexy females. Unfortunately that is the entire movie, with his need for through the lens gratification steadily increasing, along with the viewer's boredom. "Sex Through a Window" plays more like an invasion of privacy documentary than a feature film, and unfortunately it's entertainment value is never fully developed. - MERK
