Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” (1954) is one of the most ingeniously reflexive films ever made, so not surprisingly it’s inspired a good number of imitators and deviations. Hitchcock’s own “Vertigo” (1958) is something of a continuation and inversion from an allegory for spectatorship to filmmaking. “Blow-Up” (1966) and “The Conversation” (1974) took the formula in different directions, while others, such as “Body Double” (1984), besides other Brian De Palma films, “The ‘Burbs” (1989), “Disturbia” (2007) and “Wakefield” (2017), along with this short, “The Neighbors’ Window,” are obviously similar to the form of “Rear Window.”
In “Rear Window,” James Stewart’s character was our surrogate spectator on screen, who was watching the film-within-the-film that were the activities of his neighbors, as seen through his apartment’s rear window. This inner film followed a typical Hitchcockian suspense scenario involving a suspected murder and a blonde in peril, along with various subplots as seen through other neighbors’ windows, including the sexual voyeurism in regards to “Miss Torso.” “The Neighbors’ Window” begins with such voyeurism, too, as the middle-aged parents sit in rapture at the 20-somethings across the way having sex. After that, however, the picture follows more in the line of indie movies obsessed with intimate tales of relationships and familial drama, and it’s made by a documentarian, Marshall Curry, who seems to similarly be focused on such personal narratives.
As in “Rear Window,” which played around with the cinematic gaze, there’s a nice twist here, too. Our main surrogate spectator, the wife and mother, reveals herself to her neighbor’s gaze and interjects herself into the film-within-the-film. Moreover, this reveals that she, too, has been an object of the neighbors’ gaze; she, too, is observed through windows–is in a film-within-a-film.
I thought this pretty unimpressive to be honest, the technical aspects are basic, the story is predictable and obvious and it seemed pushing and manipulative towards drawing a certain emotional response. It wasn’t bad but I’m there there are way more deserving films our there to be awarded and recognized.
