  1. 1. Hitchcock uses montage to add a somewhat chaotic rhythm to the scene so the audience can relate to the chaos running through the main characters mind as he watches his wife speak to another man. 2. Hitchcock puts us into the main characters mind as we watch his wife speaking with another man in close proximity through a mirror.
