I love a film that has me wondering what the hell is happening from the very start, and this just does that. And because it doesn’t directly answer all the questions it prompts, I’m still thinking about it, which is a good thing.

Not one but two Jake Gyllenhaals find themselves face to face with each other, trying to work out how and why they are both identical. Tension obviously ensues. What’s brilliant though is that we’re never in any doubt as to which ‘Jake’ we’re with at any one time: even when one is impersonating the other. He is, as usual, outstanding.

For the first time in I can’t remember how long, I’m now actually going to read the book which inspired the film.
