A magazine photographer, housebound on account of a broken leg, becomes voyeur to the apartment building facing his rear window for lack of anything to do. Soon, he draws his visiting girlfriend in on the thrill and eventually they witness a murder in progress that gets them into hot water.

Rear Window Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

I can't quite shake the feeling that Rear Window's 1080p/VC-1 encoded video transfer, for all its strides and striking shots, could look better, which will no doubt leave some readers shaking their heads and dismissing this review entirely. To be honest, I've bounced back and forth between a 3.5 and a 4.0 ever since I laid eyes on Universal's new presentation, cursing my inability to somehow split the difference. But choices must be made and I choose... to round up. The source of my hesitance? Color and contrast are in a steady, arguably negligible state of flux, some of which is easily attributable to the original elements, some which appears as if it could have easily been addressed. Skintones are a bit problematic; accurate to the era on the whole but, in some cases, too pale, too orange or too muddy. Artifacts aren't common but they aren't uncommon either; watch for brief instances of suspicious grain, fleeting banding and minor crush. And digital manipulation is slightly obvious at times, particularly when the lights go down in Jeffries' apartment. That said, colors are typically satisfying and supported well, black levels are rich and inky (albeit a tad oppressive here and there), grain behaves as it should far more often than not, and clarity is excellent. Detail is the real draw to Rear Window's Masterpiece Collection resurrection, with clean edges, surprisingly revealing textures and exterior shots that showcase every brick, flower, ladder rung, window sill and distant passerby. Moreover, the encode isn't beholden to any serious aliasing or macroblocking, and the restoration itself is impressive overall. So while my gut tells me there's a better presentation of Rear Window to be had one day, my heart tells me "shut up, kid, and take in the scenery."


Rear Window Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

No internal debate on this one. Universal's two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix is fantastic, from the faint sounds of a fidgeting voyeur cloaked in darkness to the exterior comings and goings of Jeffries' neighbors to the hustle-n-bustle chorus of street noise in the distance. It's so involving that I longed to hear a carefully crafted 5.1 remix (so long as a presentation of the original mono audio was available too, of course). But no matter. Dialogue is crystal clear and lovingly grounded in the city, effects are clean and precise, and Franz Waxman's music and, more importantly, Hitchcock's score-like soundscape has been given full run of the place to engaging ends. None of it defies the tone and tenor of the film's mid-50s sound design either, making the resulting lossless audio as faithful as it is memorable. Purists will be most pleased, as will anyone and everyone who has affection for Rear Window.
