I'll just admit right away that i did not really understand this movie. This was a strange one. I assume it's one you have to watch several times to fully get, but i doubt i will be doing that. I liked the movie, but it's not one i fell i will ever need to watch again. Jake Gyllenhaal did a good job playing his dual roles, even if they were both pretty much the same characters. One is a little more aggressive than the other, but that's about it i feel. I can't avoid comparing this to the other movie where the main actor plays a dual role this year, The Double. They felt very similar in tone and setting. Very dark and bleak. And while i think Jake Gyllenhaal is the better actor of the two, Jesse Eisenberg did a better job in The Double. Largely thanks to the fact that he had more to do though. Those characters felt like two distinctly different characters. But that was the point in that movie, and i think the point here was that the characters were supposed to be so very alike. But this is definitely worth a watch. Be prepared for some very strange moments though. This movie has a weird fascination with spiders it seems. The very last scene of the movie was especially strange and i really need to look up what that meant. But yeah, definitely worth checking out.
