Details

In his new film Double Take, acclaimed director Johan Grimoprez (dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y) casts Alfred Hitchock as a paranoid history professor, unwittingly caught up in a double take. Positioned agains the bacdrop of the Cold War and inspired by a Jorge Luis Borges short story, Double Take draws you closer into a dazzling and beguiling mystery full of political intrigue in which Hitchock and his elusive double increasingly obsess over the perfect murder of each other. 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.
