This week we pick out favourite movies that take place in one room or one location. Feel free to suggest your own answers in the comments as we love to read them.
Richard chooses Hitchcock’s Rear Wndow for the way it slowly feeds its story details and the way James Stewart runs with them in our minds.
Kris also chooses Hitchcock, but goes for Rope, a masterly told story that plays without any breaks before your eyes thanks to some incredible set choreography of cast and crew.
Check out these projects inspired by Hitchcock’s work:
Rear Window Loop
Jeff Desom used image stitching software to reassemble the world outside of Jimmy Stewart’s window.
Psychoville’s Special Episode
Challenged to tell their story with just one room, Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith (both of League of Gentlemen infamy) explain how they drew inspiration from Hitch’s Rope.
