Feature Film continues Douglas Gordon’s fascination with the films of Alfred Hitchcock. Focusing this time on the music, Feature Film draws on the momentous score by Bernard Herrmann for Hitchcock’s classic Vertigo. Douglas Gordon, in his directorial debut, has created a new film featuring James Conlan (chef d’orchestre of the Paris Opera), in which the music is played out through his dramatic head and hand gestures.

The book is published as a parallel work with reproductions of movie stills from Feature Film and Vertigo that represent the same moment in the score along with a CD that contains a complete new recording of the music from Vertigo. The book also contains critical texts by Raymond Bellour and Royal S. Brown.
