Rear Window – Alfred Hitchcock

How Hitchcock used editing to turn ‘Rear Window’ (1954) into a masterpiece of visual storytelling.

In Rear Window, a film Alfred Hitchcock called his “most cinematic” because it was “told only in visual terms” (and in the screenplay, there is, indeed, no dialogue for the first four pages) we can see how the Kuleshov effect provides much of the film’s drama.
