Another great opening shot from Hitch for this movie. In just over two minutes, we get a kind of preview of what's going to transpire for most of the film! It lets us know that WE are the voyeurs here, not the sleeping Jeff.


I love how the shot starts off low, following a cat, that greatest of prowlers/voyeurs. The shot follows a rectangular pattern, then there are cuts to several of the apartments, showing intimate scenes, particularly of "Miss Torso," topless at first.


Then the camera "prowls" Jeff's apartment, and we discover everything we need to know about him, his job, his accident, his static position.


Also interesting is the choice of music. It's not "morning" music at all, but a rumba (I think), with a kind of Arabic-sounding melody that indicates energy and restlessness.

Yep, we're in a city.
