Windows is a 1980 American psycho thriller film starring Talia Shire (Prophecy), Joseph Cortese and Elizabeth Ashley, directed by cinematographer Gordon Willis (The Godfather and sequel) from a screenplay by Barry Siegel. The soundtrack score was composed by Ennio Morricone.
Emily Hollander (Shire) is the subject of a lesbian obsession at the hands of Andrea Glassen (Ashley), her next-door neighbor.
As Emily begins dating detective Bob Luffrono (Cortese), Andrea overflows with jealousy, spying on Hollander through her own window…
Good Efficient Butchery review: ” …the pace is almost glacial and story elements are completely illogical, especially the way the rapist is apprehended (Emily gets back in the cab?!), and in the fact that the primary villain’s identity is made clear much too early. The finale, which goes on forever… is terribly-handled, never suspenseful, and anti-climactic in the extreme.”
Moon in the Gutter review: “Framed immaculately and photographed with the skill only a true master could bring to the screen, Windows is a visual triumph. Sadly, the look of Windows can’t save it from its stale storyline, poor plotting and wooden dialogue.”
