Johan Grimonprez's ingenious documentary/fiction hybrid -- a meditation on identity, filmmaking, power and paranoia -- looks at Alfred Hitchcock's late 50s and early 60s films against the climate of Cold War-era political anxiety. Using a meticulous array of archive footage -- as well as a story by novelist Tom McCarthy (Remainder) about Hitchcock encountering his double during production of The Birds -- Grimonprez traces the global rise of fear as a commodity, examining modern history through the lens of mass media, advertising and Hollywood.

Actors:

Ron Burrage,Mark Perry

Description:

An ingenious hybrid, Double Take is part mock-documentary, part conceptual experiment, and altogether a thought-provoking, hugely entertaining and hilarious piece that does for Alfred Hitchcock what Orson Welles did for himself in his myth-making F for Fake. Using archive TV and newsreel material, classic footage from his films, and newly shot scenes, Double Take constructs a new tale of paranoia and mystery narrated by Hitchcock himself.
