What is the movie The Double about?
The Double is an excellent example of creative movie making. Story centers around a man called Simon, he is a timid man, he is what one might call an ordinary man who is a bit shy. He isn't noticed at work, his mother scorns him often and the woman he loves ignores him. He can't fight against those things, he feels powerless and unable to do anything about his dire situation in life. New co-worker, James, who is Simon's exact physical double, he looks exactly the same as Simon, but his inner workings are an exact opposite. James is charismatic, full of confidence and good with women. Simon has to make an important decision, will he continue to silently tolerate everything life throws at him or will he manage to change and adapt to new situations? The movie is based on a novel written by Dostoevsky, and fans of the great Russian writer are advised to see how the book looks on the screen. Writing of the movie is well done, creative and alluring, the acting is insanely well and Jesse Eisenberg manages to play two completely different roles very well. This movie definitely isn't for everyone, and it probably requires a second viewing in order to fully understand and appreciate everything the director throws at the audience. Brilliant, smart movie for people who appreciate the cinema as an art. With that being said, the movie can be watched by anyone who enjoys a good flick made to make the viewers think.

I hated this movie in a way I can't remember ever hating a movie before. But I started with high expectations because I usually enjoy books and movies about doubles, and I watched patiently through the first five-to-ten minutes. But the film is so pretentious, so pseudo-artsy, and so totally dependent upon images rather than meaningful dialogue that before long I began to wish the movie over. I very much liked the opening scene where Simon is told to move from his subway seat--reminded me of an Ingmar Bergman film--and the movie does pick up once the double enters. But it's all downhill from here. I've liked Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska in other films, but they seem emotionless and even mechanical in this one. It's been a long time since I've felt so emotionally uninvolved with a film. I'm glad that I saw it On Demand; if I had paid movie prices to see it, I would have been really ticked off.

Mmm, this is the movie that shows very well how important it is not to lose yourself, by doing nothing, and assimilating to any circumstances. I am not a person who likes to watch “heavy” movies, as i find them boring, but this is not that kind of a movie. It is exactly the type of movie which i call qualitative. The actors in the movie were simply perfect. Jesse Eisenberg, who became famous due to “The Facebook” movie, he performed great, simply great. I was not happy by performance of an actor for a long time. Mia has done great as well, though i do not really like this actress. The emotional background of the movie was accompanied by a great music on piano, there was some romantic type of compositions. Even though the main hero has tried starting a relation, but his natural shy character and modesty have not allowed him to do it. And that was the moment when his alter ego has appeared. In some moments the movie was comic, in some sad, but in general it is a well set movie that i will watch more times with great pleasure.

This movie is not that easy to watch, and it is certainly not made for everyone, as it was not created to entertain, though some people say it is a “black” comedy, mm and it is hard to argue with that, as it is definitely not a thriller either. You need to really love and appreciate the world of cinema in order to be able to enjoy this movie. As about the subject. Simon is a modest boy who has a lot of complexes. He has problems everywhere in his life. He is so pathetic that even when he was in a train a man has pushed him away from the seat and said that he is sitting on his place. He likes his colleague from work but he is afraid even to look at her and say hi. But at some point everything changes, when at his office appears a new worker James, who is identical to Simon according to physical appearance, but has a completely different character. He is arrogant and has no principles. So soon he takes everything from Simon: his job, his girl and his life. I think this movie was meant to show that fate of the person is in his own hands. It is a good one!

Yesterday i found the movie “Double” which was released in 2013. During watching this movie i kept wanting to switch off the movie and find something else to see, but nevertheless i watched it till the end. What has stopped me? I think the fact that this movie is very unusual.I had the feeling that i already saw and heard all of those things. The grey walls, dark colors, weird people and the sad loneliness. Only later i read some reviews about this movie, and realized i had to do it before i decided to see this movie. It is a very psychological one.Especially when i saw the Double of the hero.It is a good performance o actors, main and supporting ones. Intrigue of the movie was captivating for people till the end of it. So what was the mystery of the double and how the main character will act in this situation. Will he be able to fight him and who will obtain the victory.And the most important thing who is real. Well in general notes i can say that this movie is for people who like psychology. But remember if you started to watch it, you need to do it till the end. It deserves that, and you will have many things to think about it later.
