two of Hitchcocks best flicks. I choose Vertigo for sure. Its my favorite of his.
This is a tough call, two of my favorite Hitchcock movies. I went with Rear Window.
Classic matchup. Both are the best examples of Hitchcock's work but Vertigo is a far more layered and constructed film. Vertigo it is.
Think the opposite of jrod. Of the five Hitchcock films I have seen thus far, Rear Window is my favorite and Vertigo my least favorite. Vertigo is by no means a bad film, but it cannot begin to compare to Rear Window.
Tough matchup. Both films are among my favourite Hitchcock movies (The Birds rounds out the top 3), so it's really hard to choose one over the other. Vertigo is darker and more serious, while Rear Window is almost kind of a satire. I'll probably go with the more light-hearted one, though only for now. It's so darn close...
I like both, but i think the setup in Rear Window is more clever.
Rear Window, all the way. I find Vertigo overrated, whereas I feel that Rear Window deserves every piece of praise it gets. I don't think Vertigo's a bad movie at all. I just don't think it deserves the "Best Movie Ever" status that many heap on it.
Vertigo hands down. Every time i watch it (and i've watched it over 15 times) i find something new. Rear Window has the same appeal but as jmw222 puts it "it's far more layered and constructed".
Two of my favorites from Alfred Hitchcock. Vertigo has great suspense and a complex story, while Rear Window builds up great suspense by having a really simple story. I have to give Vertigo the nod, it made a slightly bigger impression on me, especially with the ending.
Vertigo without a doubt.
Brutal choice, but I went with Rear Window. I really love movies that can do a lot with a limited setting (Rear Window, 12 Angry Men, etc).
this is a very tough decision. both are excellent in their own right, but each one made me feel different. Rear Window was a fun and suspensful mystery thriller while Vertigo was a serious and dark mystery thriller. i guess it all boils down to which one was more interesting to watch, to which i say it's Vertigo
@rtth, you nailed it with that phrase mate! I too love those movies. I'll add Rope and Dial M For Murder to that list of yours. I like Rear Windo better, but I completely understand why someone would go for Vertigo.
Rear Window, its my favorite Hitchcock movie
Hitchcock's handle of romance always struck me as patently "Hollywood"; empty, shallow, schmaltzy, just plain bad. Rear Window it is.
Rear Window. Far and away my favorite Hitchcock...
Rear window is great but vertigo is one of the only movies that when it's finished i have to control myself not to replay back from the start as i have other things to do.
Rating #25,000. Rear Window. I had been given a play-by-play of what happened in Rear Window before I saw it and it was still one of the most suspenseful movies I've ever seen. Few times in my life have I been so enthralled by a film.
Definition of "A Tough One"
Whoa, definitely a tough matchup. I'm not even sure which one I have ranked higher. I guess I'm about to find out...
Rear Window. I thought that Vertigo was okay but I was only mildly entertained by it. Rear Window floored me.
This is really tough. I loved Vertigo and I thought it was really deep, well done and interesting. It's even in my top 20 of all time. But Rear Window is so suspenseful and awesome, I think I'm going to pick it.
Vertigo for me. I really liked Rear Window, but man does the movie take its time to set things up. I was bored the first 30 minutes or so while I was on the frickin' edge of my seat during the last 30 minutes. I was never bored during Vertigo; I thought it was intriguing and cleverly made.

Vertigo really didn't work for me like Rear Window, Psycho, North by Northwest and Notorious...Sad, but Rear Window is amazing--- I love it

Rear Window is far better IMO....Vertigo is the only Hitchcock movie that didn't appeal
Rear Window, I feel, is Hitchcock's best
