Citizen Rules
I did like the movie. I love the way Hitch incorporated vertical themes into many of his scenes and sets, which of course supports the film's title and theme.
Then the halfway point hits and it instantly got me hooked. It demands you to look at the film in a different light and repeat a viewing. So how do I feel about that? I still don't know.
