Double your pleasure, double the fun… well I wouldn’t say the movie is exactly fun. The movie has this depressing vibe set in a bureaucratic nightmare world where paper pushing is king. The movie really feels like Brazil except less confusing. This film is actually based off a Dostoyevsky story and I might have to check it out eventually. Jesse Eisenberg plays two parts Simon James and James Simon. One is a wimpy ghost-of-a-nobody and the other is bold, brash and charismatic. They are identical in every way except their personalities. Mia Wasikowska is the love interest of the two and she does a great job as usual. The film is just creepy, weird and a little off. I wouldn’t say this is for everybody, but if you enjoy strange movies, you might like this.
