To Catch a Thief

To Catch a Thief ★★★★

This is one of only a few Hitchcock movies I haven’t seen before and I enjoyed it. Normally I would prefer Jimmy Stewart in any role over Cary Grant but Grant has the cat burglar grace Stewart never had for this role. There is a lot of interesting direction of light in this, shots of Grant in the dark catching the light, and great uses of fireworks either in the background or intercut within the scene. I’m going to have to give this one a second watch pretty soon.
