    Damn. These are probably my two favorite Hitchcock films.
    Let's get a little crazy.

    Rear Window has the edge for me here. They are both masterpieces though.

    "There is, though I do not know how there is or why there is,
    a sense of infinite peace and protection in the glittering hosts of heaven."

    Easy choice for me. Rear Window is one of my favorite Hitchcock films, and one of my favorites of the decade.
    Only the gentle are ever really strong.
