Rear Window is my favourite film.  I haven’t seen anything better.

Thanks to /film, I have witnessed the genius of Jeff Desom, who has built a 3D digital model of the courtyard from the film, so we can see the action from Jimmy Stewart‘s apartment window in a single shot.  It’s incredible and below.

Here is Jeff in his own words,

“I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stitched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot.”

Er, wow.
