Your Paranoia Is Real.
Threats from sinister foreign nationals aren't the only thing to fear. Bedraggled college professor Michael Faraday has been vexed (and increasingly paranoid) since his wife's accidental death in a botched FBI operation. But all that takes a backseat when a seemingly all-American couple set up house next door.

This was almost as bad as Prisoners (2013). It's amazing how otherwise good actors agree to participate in monstrosities like this...

The writing suffers from the worst kinds of exploitative sentimentality, and it does so mostly in the cause of advocating suspicion, paranoia, and surveillance. The characters are all 1-dimensional. The cinematography and framing are poorly done, and rely mostly on having characters "pop up" out of nowhere for shocks. The acting is mediocre at best. The writing has a distorted view of human nature.

There's some inspiration from things like Rear Window, but it does Hitchcock's piece a disservice to mention it here.

Perfect movie, twists and turns everywhere. Excellent performance by both Bridges and Robbins. Highly recommended!
