    • Synopsis
    • Director Johan Grimonprez casts Alfred Hitchcock as a paranoid history professor, unwittingly
      caught up in a double take on the cold war period. The master says all the wrong things at all the
      wrong times while politicians on both sides desperately stammer to say the right things, live on TV.
      DOUBLE TAKE targets the global political rise of ‘fear as a commodity’, in a tale of odd couples
      and double deals. As television hijacks cinema, and the Krushchev and Nixon debate rattles on,
      sexual politics quietly take off and Alfred himself emerges in a dandy new role on TV, blackmailing
      housewives with brands they can't refuse.
