Poster of Glass Ceiling

The Glass Ceiling is a psychological thriller in the Hitchcock mold—specifically, it can be read as something of an update of Rear Window (1954). ...In common with the Hitchcock film, the action unfolds during a hot spell; the heat acts as a catalyst of sorts, prompting the characters to behave irrationally and to act on their worst instincts. In this sense, it’s also something of a precursor to Armando Crispino’s Autopsy (1975), wherein an intense Roman heat wave is directly linked to a series of gruesome suicides.
