A Little Gem,
This review is from: The Devil's Double [DVD] (DVD)
This is a beautifully shot picture with a bravura performance by Dominic Cooper.
It shines as golden as the Iraqi sun and evokes the dark underbelly to that beautiful if beleaguered land.
It tells the true story of the psychotic Uday's double.
Now - if liberties have been taken then they can hardly hold a candle to the demented Uday himself who was indulged and allowed to run amok. Otherwise this is an authentic evocation of beautiful country in the hands of a mad man.
And if anyone remember Baghdad before the war then this will be like knife to the heart to see its former glory and what it has become.
All the actors in this movie are excellent - I cannot fault it.
Watch this and enter the mind of a lunatic.
Dominic Cooper is utterly superb
