Renightz's rating of the film Double Take

What if History, specially the Cold War-era, was a movie directed by Sir Alfred Hitchcock? Well, that’s precisally what Double Take seems to be. However, Johan Grimonprez’s film about dopplegangers based on a Jorge Luis Borge’s essay is much more than that: it’s a playful cinematic examination of time, history, memory, ideology and, of course, Alfred Hitchcock. A wonder.
