Synopsis

Alfred Hitchcock is unwittingly caught up in a double take on the Cold War. As television hijacks cinema, Khrushchev debates Nixon, and sexual politics quietly take off, Hitchcock himself blackmails housewives with offers they can’t refuse…

MUBI's take

A Borgesian tumble down rabbit holes of free-associative playfulness, Double Take weaves archival footage of the Master of Suspense with contemporaneous newsreels. Examining Cold War anxieties through the prism of Hitchcock and his cinema, it makes for a startlingly ambitious puzzle-box of a film.
