Rate this:
Johan Grimonprez's ingenious documentary/fiction hybrid, a meditation on identity, filmmaking, power, and paranoia, looks at Alfred Hitchcock's late '50s and early '60s films against the climate of Cold War-era political anxiety using a meticulous array of archive footage, as well as a story by novelist Tom McCarthy (Remainder) about Hitchcock encountering his double during production of The Birds.

Subtract two stars from my rating if you have no interest in Alfred Hitchcock, TV commericals in the 60's, atomic bombs or the history of the cold war between the Soviet Union and the United States. This movie is a collage of all these items weaved together with an imaginary Hitchcock played by a currently living actor that looks somewhat like him. You will miss the meaning of a lot of the Hitchcock stuff if you haven't seen a bazillion of his films or his TV show.
