Video Review: The Double

Director: Richard Ayoade
Writers: Richard Ayoade, Fyodor Dostoevsky (novel)
Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn

Synopsis: A clerk in a government agency finds his unenviable life takes a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and seductive with women.

The Double is a fascinating look at the Doppelganger effect and how one would approach the situation, especially when it comes so unexpected. The film is dark, gritty and is extremely well shot. Our video review breaks it all down and why this is a film to see this year.

    The Double was a very confusion movie but I liked the acting. I really thought Jessi Eisenberg was great with the 2 rolls and I really liked the look of this movie. It reminded me of “Brazil” meets “Metropolis” Good review

      Thanks man! I agree about Eisenberg..he was fantastic. I think it’s his best work since The Social Network. And I can def see why it’s confusing as a lot of it’s themes are intentionally hidden, but the film to me, speaks a lot about identity.
