Brew Views: Rear Window

Everything is half off.

Since Hollywood is forever bent on remaking its thrillers with more gore and less brains—the hee-haw replica of Straw Dogs is merely the latest example—we might as well get in on the ground floor. Hitchcock’s Rear Window has already been counterfeited twice in the past 15 years (once with Shia Le Beouf, for God’s sake), but what if we tried shooting it from Raymond Burr’s point of view? There’s the guilty paranoia of being watched (deep!), the grindhouse mess of fitting a wife into suitcases (edgy!), and the nosy neighbors bursting in without knocking (shocking!). Eli Roth directs. Zach Galifianakis stars. A hit! Let’s get lunch. Showing at: Laurelhurst.

  • Best paired with: Coalition Maple Porter.
  • Also showing: Colombiana (Kennedy School, Mission).
 
  • Currently 3.5/5 Stars.
