2009, 1h20 min., English
Acclaimed 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 clamor to say the right things, live on TV. Double Take targets the global rise of ‘fear-as-a-commodity’, in a tale of odd couples and hilarious double deals.

PARTNER (IL SOSIA)
By Bernardo Bertolucci
1968, 1h45min, Italian with ENG sub.
Based on Dostoyevsky’s "The Double", Partner is the story of Jacob, a young man who meets his own likeness and allows him to take over his life; the second Jacob commandeers his predecessor’s theatre class in the hopes of creating living theatre–as a violent act of social revolution
Bernardo Bertolucci conflated his interests in psychoanalysis, nonlinear narrative, and Godard to create a uniquely avant-garde work unlike anything in his œuvre.
