Hey, that's a half truth!
20 October 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the documentary on the DVD of Rear Window. It consists of interviews(including one with Hitchcock... and yes, this does hold a little of his impeccable, sardonic wit; the elevator story is a real kneeslapper), clips of the film and excerpts of the script. And in case you're wondering what my summary means, it's that the title of this isn't entirely correct; this is a making-of of the movie, and only briefly near the end does it go into the restoration of it(and I must say, it was surprisingly interesting... I mean, the two guys are still pretty dull to listen to, but this time(as opposed to when I heard them go over it in relation to Vertigo, which this featurette also has footage of), I was actually engaged by it). We get great analysis of Alfred and what this picture meant, and they talk about the voyeurism(of the lead and of us all), how Miss Torso winged her dancing moves(so it looked more casual and natural, because she didn't know she was being watched), how there is no score, other than what the characters play, and how everything was photographed from inside Stewart's apartment(and that it wasn't the only time The Master put limitations on himself like that). This is a quite informational and enjoyable 55 minutes. I recommend this to any fan of the flick itself. 7/10
