The Double

1 year, 10 months ago at Sep 29 14:25
Here is a film that I admired more than I enjoyed or embraced. It clearly wears its influences too loudly with Brazil looming largely over every single frame. The Double suffers in the unintentional comparison, but it borrows the oppressive production design from that film while forsaking the human qualities. There’s also a sideways sense of humor that recalls the work of David Lynch, but again,... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I really struggled to get into this flick. First of all, I have to admit that I haven’t read this book from Dostoevsky (I probably should at some point) but the guy was a fascinating writer and the damned thing definitely had some potential.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I really struggled to get into this flick. First of all, I have to admit that I haven’t read this book from Dostoevsky (I probably should at some point) but the guy was a fascinating writer and the damned thing definitely had some potential. In fact, I discovered that Roman Polanski had tried to launch his own version in the 90’s but, after John Travolta dropped a week before starting to shoot, the project collapsed soon afterwards which is such a shame since it seemed to be some great material for the Polish material. Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it was not bad but this concept of a bleak dystopian bureaucratic society ha” read more

" This is one of those art house-type films. I give these a try every once in a while to see what I'm missing. Turns out I still don't like them. The acting was spectacular, but it was so f*cking weird. Yeah, that's all I got."

The Double

“Here is a film that I admired more than I enjoyed or embraced. It clearly wears its influences too loudly with Brazil looming largely over every single frame. The Double suffers in the unintentional comparison, but it borrows the oppressive production design from that film while forsaking the human qualities. There’s also a sideways sense of humor that recalls the work of David Lynch, but again, it’s more obvious influence sleeve-wearing than it is successful adaption of said style.   The worst problem with The Double is the lead character of Simon, a diminished little creep that practically wreaks of Nice Guy™. You know the type, and if you don’t, ask the women in your life. He creepily moves into the apartment complex across the street from his object of obsession (Mia Wasiko” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- July 2015 (24 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 33min. First Viewing It's a little to cold for my liking but, even so, The Double is a fascinating and darkly comical portrait of a crumbling psyche, and clashing personalities. On the technical level, it's an interesting movie to behold; Richard Ayoade frames the movie in a moody, ominous light that works wonders. None of the film would work with Eisenberg though, who giving a pair of winning performances."
