Trailer: The Double

I wasn't too taken by IT Crowd star Richard Ayoade's 2010 directorial debut, Submarine, but his follow-up The Double, based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella, sounds like it might be something I would lap up mainly because it features one of my favourite plot elements in cinema: doppelgangers. So here we get TWO Jesse Eisenbergs for the price of one, and it seems to have mostly impressed critics who caught its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The Guardian favourably compared Ayoade's film to Terry Gilliam, Michel Gondry and the Coen Brothers; Indiewire says it's "Totally bonkers, hilarious and wickedly clever... special and singular filmmaking at its best." Nice use of Son House's "Grinnin' In Your Face" in this dialogue-less trailer:
