I dunno, this wasn't that bad as some of the reviwers would like you to believe. I don't get these folks with comments like 'this is an hour and a half of my life I'm never going to get back, like it was such a tragedy. Some people can't wrap their heads around thinking films.
There was a gal I worked with that went off on 2001 being boring, rather than just admit the thing was over her head. Do we need a comment section here when all the nay sayers are here just to try to drive people away?
Like with the Black Swan, things didn't start to fall in place until the third act when we first start to wonder how much of what had passed had been really hallucinations, which made things more interesting for the finale.
True, this film was a bit slower, but it was still fun to watch.

It's a "head scratcher" like Inception or The Prestige. However it leaves you without any explanations. Jake did a faboulous job acting. Leave this one alone if you like tidy endings.

Predictable and boring: filled with shots of people walking - s l o w l y.

This movie was adapted from the Portuguese author Jose Saramago's novel "The Double" which gave it a promising beginning, but the screenwriter has seen too many of David Lynch's films. The eerie, off- balance narrative, accompanied by a weird music track gives the movie both an art house cachet and a "WTF' response from the viewer - or at least that was my take on it. It was an interesting failed attempt at adaptation and Jake Gyllenhall, who is a good but limited actor, just wasn't a good choice for the dopplegangers.

Give Mr. G credit for branching out and doing something different and shout out to all the Toronto and Mississauga references and sites in this movie. Just definitely not my cup of tea and can't recommend it, though I'd have to say if the beginning and the end were either changed or omitted altogether the story in between wouldn't have suffered as much.

This was an hour and a half of my life that I will never get back. Don't waste your time.

This was definitely not my kind of movie. I am surprised that Jake Gyllenhaal took this role. It is something more like a John Cusack "let me dump something on you" kind of picture. Unless you are into movies like "Vanilla Sky" so you are in someone's psychosis, or some subliminal sexual fantasy, this is not for you. They should have saved the celluloid and just donated it to science. Sick, really sick movie. I most certainly would not recommend it.

Horrible movie didnt go anywhere

What an absolute waste of time. Filmed mostly in the dark (why?), no logic to anything the characters do, the most ridiculous ending ever.
