Note: Taking a look at a beloved classic, Tysto returns to the podcast for a commentary on one of Alfred Hitchcock's masterworks of suspense, "Rear Window". We discuss minimalist storytelling, economy of information, relationship politic of the 1950s' versus today, voyeurism and building a great mystery. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD.
