Looking for Alfred

About the video

Looking for Alfred weaves an unexpected narrative from Hitchcock’s trail of walk-on parts, in which the master himself is pursued by a number of shadowy doppelgängers, caught up in a world of mistaken identity. Playing out a multi-leveled ‘reality’, Grimonprez’s cinematic twists and turns echo the trademark of the Master of Suspense, while radiating a quiet and beguiling surrealism reminiscent of that other great master, Rene Magritte.
