Director Martin Scorsese on Alfred Hitchcock's REAR WINDOW, how it can be watched again and again, and on Jimmy Stewart's odd character.

Mr. Scorsese is a Brilliant Director like Hitchcock. Rear Window is my favorite, i can watch it all the time
I saw REAR WINDOW at a movie theatre in Kagoshima Japan back in 1985. After seeing it only on TV, it was amazing getting to view it on a big screen as if one was actually looking out an apartment window into the private lives of the neighbors. If you ever get the chance to see it in a theatre, GO FOR IT!  Wonderful.  
The brilliance of Rear Window lies with the slow but full pace of the movie. Hitchcock gives you the time to relax and become part of the scenes, the long conversations, the various characters and their moral dilemmas (fear of commitment, fear of stagnation, personal incompatibilities and common interests etc.) and the busy neighbourhood which give the characters room to discuss their world views. In the end it is about the two main characters finding common ground as they are absolved by the "adventure at home" to evolve their relationship.

@thebobscott Dances with wolves is very good film also and you can't say it's not deserved Oscar, though it wouldn't be undeserved if Goodfellas got it. Anyway, that is not one of the shames in history of Oscar, but still that list is too long.
Totally agree with Marty. I remember watching this fairly recently with an audience and was surprised at how well it played to them. The audience was totally in to it even going so far as to start yelling at the screen. I've always loved it and still do to this day but I'd never realized how contemporary it really is.
