Our take

Perversely playing with our imaginations, Hitch orchestrates this exhilarating triumph of suspense around an immobilised Jimmy Stewart—using a camera as an extension of his own body. One of the most influential films of all time, and a sublime celebration of cinema as the ultimate act of voyeurism.
