Good retrospective documentary
5 August 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Directed by the greatest film-related documentary maker of all time, faeturing a wealth of new and old footage chronicling the making and reflections of REAR WINDOW, this is a must-see for all fans (it is included on the R2 Special Edition, and -- I assume -- on the R1 as well).

It even features some old interview snippets with Alfred Hitchcock, which -- to be honest -- I'd never seen before. (I'd never seen any interviews with Hitchcock.)

All in all, interesting and amusing -- not "great" but very good and worth renting the DVD for. If you haven't seen the movie in a long time, you NEED to see it with the new digital restoration transfer. The documentary is the cherry on top.

4.5/5
