Average Shot Length

Hitchcock tends to keep the camera focused for a while on the scenes showing the neighbor's lives in the window. Obviously, he wants us to be like Jefferies and think hard about each neighbor's story and what each neighbor is doing. When the camera stays on Thorwald for a long time in his apartment, the audience suddenly becomes like Jefferies- immersed in watching someone else's life. Now we're curious about Thorwald, and it's like we are also escaping from reality into the life of someone else, formulating our own opinions on Thorwald's possible murder (which we now he already did do it) of his wife.
