When I was at the Film Museum in Amsterdam they where promoting a film by Johan Grimonprez called "Double Take". From taking a brief look at the trailer it look like a very interesting movie with some clever re touch work on Alfred Hitchcock. A quote from Grimonprez is: "If you meet your double, you should kill him."
I will endevour to watch this film over the coming weeks and post a review some time soon.
DOUBLE TAKE targets the global rise of fear-as-a-commodity, in a tale of odd couples and hilarious double deals. As television hijacks cinema, and the Khrushchev and Nixon kitchen debate rattles on, sexual politics quietly take off and Alfred himself emerges in a dandy new role on the TV, blackmailing housewives with brands they can't refuse.
