WATCH: Eyes of Hitchcock - Kogonada


Kogonada is a director and video essayist. Here, in a work created for The Criterion Collection, he has spliced together shots Hitchcock used of his actors’ eyes.


On his website he states:

When characters stare at the camera in the films of Alfred Hitchcock, the look is almost always associated with the threat of death (through the eyes of a victim, a murderer, a witness). This momentary suspension between death and life is partly what makes Hitchcock the indisputable master of suspense.
