30 Day Challenge- Day 7: Favorite Thriller

This one was easy. Every since I saw it for the first time about seven years ago, Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window has remained in my mind as the best directed movie I have ever seen. You’d think that there is only so much that one can do when it comes to a movie that is mostly set inside one room. Hitchcock takes full advantage of this by making it about a murder mystery involving a man who is not able to leave his house, and witnesses what may be a murder by his seemingly innocent neighbor. Thanks to the director’s mis-en-scene, the mood his director of photography sets, and great performances by Jimmy Stewart and the gorgeous Grace Kelly, this is one of the few movies that truly made my heart pound, especially during the climatic scene. It’s the perfect example of filmmaking at its finest.
