Double Take

An Official Selection at both the Berlin and Sundance Film Festivals, Johan Grimonprez's Double Take is a unique film that combines early 60's advertising, hysterical Red Menace newsreels, and Alfred Hitchcock - featuring his hilarious introductions to his TV show and movies, and interviews with actual Hitchcock impersonator Ron Burrage - into a black comedy journey through the global commoditization of fear and slippery politics of images from Sputnik, to the Cuban Missile Crisis, 9/11, and beyond.

With astonishing versatility, this documentary-fiction hybrid ingeniously blends the archive footage with cryptic allusions to an imaginary murder plot involving Hitchcock and his doppelganger to paint a vivid portrait of American media run amuck during the Cold War.

Though echoing Orson Welles' F Is For Fake, Jorge Luis Borges' famous false histories, and the collage films of Bruce Connor, Grimonprez' creation is a unique cinematic fever dream that must be experience to be believed. "Fascinating, confounding, and beautiful" (New York Magazine), Double Take is a perceptive, multi-faced gem that's "as gripping a suspense movie as one of Hitchcock's own" (Variety).
