Double Take Review


OK
Hitchcock fans and die-hard moviegoers will enjoy this offbeat collage-style movie, which is expertly assembled but struggles to engage us with a coherent story or theme. It's mischievous and clever, but also impenetrable.

Two Hitchcock doubles (lookalike Burrage and soundalike Perry) take us on a surreal trip to 1962, when Hitchcock was promoting The Birds during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Cold War paranoia echoes the terrors of The Birds, while the issue of identity is playfully explored by both the doubles and Hitchcock himself in his hilarious Alfred Hitchcock Presents introductions. Not to mention frequent intrusions from Folgers Coffee, the programme sponsor. But there's also a foreshadowing of the filmmaker's death in 1980, plus parallels with the War on Terror.

Why We Fight Review


Extraordinary
A scant two years after his brother Andrew studied the horrifying deterioration of a family dealing with a father who is convicted of pedophilia in Capturing the Friedmans, Eugene Jarecki digs back to President Eisenhower's farewell address to find the reasons and the attitudes behind our current foreign policy and our military build-up. What Eisenhower deemed "the military-industrial complex" now has become a well-over 500 billion dollar business that companies like Lockheed & Martin and Halliburton make their careers around. It's taken a year since its debut at Sundance last year, where it won the Grand Prize, but Why We Fight is finally out and ready to stir up a commotion.

First off, Republicans should not be scared of this film. Jarecki and editor Nancy Kennedy aren't looking to throw darts at one party or another. Instead, the focus of the film is to see how the need for American democracy has become an excuse to further American imperialism. Angry liberals like Gore Vidal and ex-CIA man Chalmers Johnson are given equal floor with Richard Perle and other members of the Project for the New American Century. Unlike Michael Moore's powerful but unquestionably biased Fahrenheit 9/11, Jarecki doesn't film the neoconservatives with a subversive tone. The film is based solely on facts and the interviewee's mixed bag of opinions. The only reason you could call Why We Fight anti-conservative is because it's questioning the history of the U.S.'s military thinking; the current government just happens to be conservative.
