I think that if I had to pick my most favorite Hitchcock movie, it would be Rear Window. I would even go so far as to say that it’s his best film. It’s not convoluted like North by Northwest, boring like The Man Who Knew Too Much or hit and miss like The Birds. It’s perfect. But there’s another reason why I love the movie. It had one of the most insightful commentaries on American life, one that often gets lost on viewers.

Recently, for some reason I don’t understand, Vertigo was suddenly declared the best movie of all time. Although I’m relieved that the title was taken away from Citizen Kane, I found this new choice just as troublesome.
