The legendary director Alfred Hitchcock has one goal, to make audiences squirm at the edges of their seats. Rear Window, one of his most critically acclaimed, studied and, according to Hitchcock himself, cinematic films. The way he shot this film and used the tools in his cinematic tool belt all enhance the suspense of his masterpiece. His use of sound, camera movement, scene set-up, actors, writing and more all come together to create a supreme work of suspense.
