For a Blonde... For a Brunette... For Someone... For Her... For You...

 

Synopsis: An interactive video featuring a reenactment of a key scene from Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo. The filmmaker takes on the role of James Stewart and addresses the audience, who is encouraged to complete the scene by acting out Kim Novak’s role (via karaoke-style subtitles).

Selected Press:
“Standing in an empty black space and dressed in an old suit, Olenick looks like he’s fixated on the audience like Scottie was on Judy. His timing and facial expressions are a large part of the pleasure in this minimalist film.”
– Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
