DOUBLE TAKE (Berlin International Film Festival Berlin Germany 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.3|5.0 Stars ììì

Double Take—an intellectually stimulating fictional, documentary-type presentation film—contains vast archival footage and excellent documentation that successfully uses metaphor to examine paranoia, fear, and competition between forces, from entertainment and political sources, to create environs of fear far outside reality.

Storyline

Alfred Hitchcock meets his doppelgänger.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Johan Grimonprez for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Doris Hepp for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Leonid Brezhnev (himself), George Bush (himself), George W. Bush (himself), Jimmy Carter (himself), Fidel Castro (himself), John Chancellor (himself), Bill Clinton (himself), Ron Cochran (himself), and Walter Cronkite (himself).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie credits Director Johan Grimonprez’ ability to present a complicated viewpoint within exceptionally fluid thinking processes. Intellectually entertaining.
