The Double

An interesting, at times befuddling and ultimately not quite successful second film from director Richard Ayoade.

This reminded me of bits of so many other films set in some kind of dystopia that it seems to lack originality. The irony of a film called The Double being derivative of so many others isn’t lost on me, and yet I don’t think this was deliberate on the part of the filmmaker.

I wish it had more to offer, but it left me feeling rather empty, to be honest.
