"Double Take" is a tale of intrigue, personal paranoia and deception. Using archive footage, the film uses Hitchcock's own sardonic wit to explore his preoccupation with doubles -- a recurring theme in his films -- to virtuoso and entertaining effect. Positioned against the backdrop of the Cold War and inspired by Jorge Luis Borges novella, "The Otherâ," best-selling British author Tom McCarthy writes a plot to mirror the political intrigue in which Hitchcock and his elusive double increasingly obsess over the perfect murder of each other.
