Following his extraordinary 24 Hour Psycho, Douglas Gordon's latest film, Feature Film, further explores Alfred Hitchcock's dramatic devices. Where 24 Hour Psycho considered the effect of Hitchcock's thriller if extended to 24 hours and devoid of sound, Feature Film examines Vertigo's intense, anxiety-inducing music if separated from its on-screen narrative. This book contains stills from Gordon's film of Paris Opera conductor James Conlon rehearsing Bernard Hermann's Vertigo score Focusing on Conlon's hands, arms, and facial expressions, the stills provide a fascinating look at the sweeping and subtle gestures that comprise his physical interpretation of Vertigo's musical accompaniment. This book also includes a CD of the music actually recorded during the filming, as well as a separate insert containing two essays with background information on the music, the composer, and Gordon's film work.
