4.0 out of 5 stars Double Take- Liked It, 18 Aug. 2014
By 
This review is from: The Double (DVD)
I wasn't quite sure what to make of the film. On my first viewing I was distracted and bored with the movie but I decided to give it another shot. I liked it in a peculiar way. It was very surreal, funny in places and dark. A lesson in social skills that went awry for one half of the protagonist; it is also a dark tale of ones identity being submerged in a hegemonic world to the point of non existence. It reminded me slightly of the film 1984 with humour mixed in with Terry Gilliam's Brazil. The creativity in the script and the handling of the characters' movement is brilliant not to mention the set design which is vibrant yet bleak. A very good effort.
