To Catch a Thief

Friday, May 11 - Sunday, May 13, 2012

High-definition digital projection (DCP) “One of the most lightweight (and not even particularly deceptively so) of Hitchcock’s comedy-thrillers; a retreat from the implications of Rear Window into the realm of private jokes and sunny innuendo, with a Côte d’Azur romance that hinges on Kelly’s testing of retired high-line thief Grant, to find whether ‘The Cat’ has indeed been neutered or is still able to prowl the Riviera rooftops. Even determined analysts Rohmer and Chabrol had to take comfort in celebrating Hitch’s ‘flowers of rhetoric’: the famous image of the cigarette stubbed out in an egg, and the cheeky cliché of cross-cutting foreplay and fireworks.” – Time Out (London)
