The Woman in the Window is a film-noir classic in which German-American director Fritz Lang gives us a fast-paced murder melodrama. Here, academics meet art as psychology professor Richard Wanley (Edward G. Robinson) is enamored by a portrait of the titular woman in the window, Alice Reed (Joan Bennett). The film plays on tensions between art, psychoanalysis, and the passage of time as the ill-fated pair attempt to escape the consequences of their actions.
