The Voyeurs trailer
24 September 2021
The Voyeurs, the new film by American filmmaker Michael Mohan, drew me in with its Rear Window feel. Sydney Sweeney and Justice Smith star as a young couple who have moved into an apartment in Montreal, and become obsessed with the antics of their neighbours who live across the road.
Who doesn’t love picture windows, and people who never close the blinds? Charles Bramesco, writing for The Guardian, describes The Voyeurs as a sorely needed throwback to the heyday of skin and secrecy:
Wielding a nasty cunning and just the right amount of irony, he sets up a playful take on Rear Window for the age of nude leaks that lays bare the roiling carnal subtext of Hitchcock’s masterpiece.
