The Double DVD review

15 August 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Richard Ayoade's murky, surreal comedy drama The Double arrives on disc. Here's Robert's review of a fascinating film...

Richard Ayoade is the UK's most cinephilic filmmaker. While he clearly possesses a raw talent for the craft as well, his playful early efforts in film make him something altogether more volatile and exciting. His second feature, The Double, sometimes loses itself in a world of references to other filmmakers, but it amounts to something gripping and unique enough to already have me eagerly anticipating the director's next film.

The Double is based on Fyodor Dostoyesky's novel of the same name. A lonely office worker Simon (Jesse Eisenberg), marooned in the same job in the same company for the past seven years, becomes infatuated with a pretty, equally lonely office worker, Hannah (Mia Wasikowska), but is so socially inept that he's helpless to communicate with her, as he is with anyone else. »

Blu-ray Review – The Double (2013)

4 August 2014 12:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Double, 2013.

Directed by Richard Ayoade.

Starring Jesse EisenbergMia WasikowskaWallace ShawnRade SerbedzijaCathy MoriartyNoah TaylorGemma Chan and James Fox.

Synopsis:

A clerk in a government agency finds his unenviable life takes a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and seductive with women.

“You’re in my place” says an anonymous man to Simon James, an equally anonymous man who just happens to be the lead in The Double, as he sits on an empty train. Simon gets up and moves, looking back at the man in a mirror only to see a distorted reflection of his own self. These are the first words uttered and actions seen and set that tone for what follows in Richard Ayoade’s sophomore effort as director, and things only get worse for »

‘The Double’ DVD Review

2 August 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jesse EisenbergMia WasikowskaNoah Taylor, Chris O’Dowd, Wallace Shawn, James Fox, Sally Hawkins, Paddy Considine, Cathy Moriarty | Written by Richard Ayoade, Avi Korine | Directed by Richard Ayoade

When Richard Ayoade directed Submarine he gave us this slightly quirky tale of teen love, it was all a little fluffy and silly but very good.  Moving onto The Double if you saw the trailer you could already see that it was something very different.  Taking Jesse ‘soon to be Lex Luthor’ Eisenberg and giving him a nightmarish doppelgänger we are invited into a world where being nobody can get you replaced.

Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) is nobody, he goes around the world unnoticed, ignored at work and not even noticed by the women of his dreams.  When a new worker James Simon arrives James is the only one to notice that he is an exact replica of himself.  As »

Big Screen to Small Screen: Top 10 Films About Television

13 July 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There has always been an understated rivalry between the mediums of movies and television. Many years ago it was even thought as being somewhat of a drastic career letdown if actors/actresses from film decided to depart for the landscape of television. The truth is that for some performers that had stalled or uneventful momentum in motion pictures that the concept of “slumming it” in television actually saved their show business profession. Hence, the boob tube made them relevant whereas the big screen had unceremoniously passed them by.

However, there is also a mutual respect that cinema and television share that go hand in hand when shaping our appreciation for entertainment on both the big and small screen. When movies depict the aspects of the TV world giving a sociological, psychological or emotional perspective then it is not so uncool to be a proud couch potato after all, right? Let »

‘The Double’ Review

9 May 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jesse EisenbergMia WasikowskaNoah Taylor, Chris O’Dowd, Wallace Shawn, James Fox, Sally Hawkins, Paddy Considine, Cathy Moriarty | Written by Richard Ayoade, Avi Korine | Directed by Richard Ayoade

In only two films Richard Ayoade has proven to be one of the most talented young minds in the world of cinema today. With his first film Submarine he provided new life to the world of coming of age tales by crafting a film that was unique and heartfelt. His latest film The Double is rather a hard one to quantify. It is this roaming amalgamation of different cinematic features that should not go together, yet strangely do. There is a distinct Orwellian tone spliced with David Lynch sense of weirdness. Ayoade avoids creating too overbearing of a mood by adding in a dry comedic wit reminiscent of Wes Anderson’s fast paced humor.  Within these familiar qualities is an »

The Double Movie Review

5 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: The Double Director: Richard Ayoade Starring: Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Cathy Moriarty, Sally Hawkins, Chris O’Dowd. Richard Ayoade moulds the human dramatic quest to find recognition in others into a very dark comedy, reshaping Dostoyevsky’s ‘The Double’ in a Kafkaesque journey through absurdity. Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) is trapped in an eerie, Orwellian nightmare, living in a lonely tower block and stuck in perpetual night. He works for a sinister company with the obscure objective to turn people into data “as there is no such thing as a special person”. Simon is aware he is not special. Actually he’s a forgettable non-person. And this consciousness will reinforce  [ Read More ]

‘White of the Eye’ Blu-ray Review

31 March 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: David Keith, Cathy Moriarty, Alan Rosenberg, Art Evans, Michael Greene, Danielle Smith, Alberta Watson, William G. Schilling, David Chow, Pamela Guest, Marc Hayashi, Mimi Lieber | Written by Donald Cammell, China Kong | Directed by Donald Cammell

Arrow Video are good at finding the cult movies that although sometimes obscure always deserve to be watched.  White of the Eye is a release that fits into this criteria, for the most part it would be just another average serial killer movie until Donald Cammell adds some style to it.  With a hint of mysticism and an artistic touch White of the Eye is a unique mystery that although flawed is well worth the experience.

Taking place in an isolated desert community a sound expert Paul White (David Keith) finds himself a suspect in the killings of some of the local suburban housewives.  Trying to prove his innocence, memories from the past are »

Watch: Mia Wasikowska Has Never Met Anyone Like Jesse Eisenberg In New Clip From 'The Double'

27 March 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"It was the idea of somebody so invisible & lowly that their double could appear and no one would notice; that was funny," director Richard Ayoade said during a recent Q&A about this forthcoming "The Double." And indeed, the film's pleasures come from indulging in the absurdness of the scenario of a doppelganger emerging, consuming the life of his opposite, and no one being any the wiser except for the double. Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska lead the excellent ensemble for this one (that includes Noah Taylor, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Page, Cathy Moriarty and more), with their complicated relationship at the center of the movie. You see, Simon James likes Hannah, she barely knows he's alive, but she utterly falls for his duplicate, James Simon, a much more charismatic and successful individual. And so you have scenes like the one in this clip, where Simon is utterly baffled that Hannah »

White Of The Eye Blu-ray Review

25 March 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Donald Cammell

Starring: David Keith, Cathy Moriarty, Alan Rosenberg, Art Evans, Michael Greene, Danielle Smith, Alberta Watson, William G. Schilling

Running Time: 111 Minutes

Certificate: 18

Extras: Donald Cammell: The Ultimate Performance Feature Length Documentary, The Argument: 1972 Short Film by Cammell, Into The White: Interview with Cinematographer, Deleted Scenes, Alternate Credit Sequence

Donald Cammell only directed four films in his career, before taking his life after losing final cut on his final film The Wild Side. Whether his suicide was a direct result of studio interference or not is open to debate, but it either way, the man was intense, dedicated, and visionary. White Of The Eye is a fantastic piece of work in a fantastic package thanks to the ever faultless folks over at Arrow Video.

Win White of The Eye on Blu-ray

24 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of White of the Eye on 31st March, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

A serial killer is on the loose in and around the small community of Globe, Arizona, and housewife Joan White (Cathy Moriarty) gradually comes to suspect that her opera-loving hi-fi engineer husband Paul (David Keith) might know more than he’s letting on…

So far so familiar, but in the hands of British visionary Donald Cammell (who wrote and co-directed Performance with Nicolas Roeg), the film becomes a dazzling kaleidoscope of images and ideas, spanning everything from Apache folklore, desert landscapes and stylish murder set-pieces that recall Dario Argento to a painfully vivid dissection of the emotional fissures undermining a modern marriage. It’s all set to an equally eclectic score co-written by Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason.

 Please note: This competition is open to UK residents only »

Andy Garcia, Ray Romano, Raymond De Felitta, Jonathan Fernandez, and Stephen Endelman Talk Rob The Mob, How the Project Came Together, and More

19 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening March 21st, Rob the Mob is a heartbreaking crime-thriller inspired by the true story of Tommy (Michael Pitt) and Rosie (Nina Arianda) Uva, two small-time crooks from Queens whose crazy-passionate love for one another fueled their audacious heists of Mafia social clubs in the 1990s and led to a startling discovery.  The film directed by Raymond De Felitta from a screenplay by Jonathan Fernandez boasts an impressive cast that also includes Andy Garcia (who also produces), Ray Romano, Griffin Dunne, Cathy Moriarty, Michael Rispoli, Val Vazquez, Frank Whaley and Burt Young. At the film’s recent press day, Garcia, De Felitta, Romano, Fernandez and composer Stephen Endelman spoke about how the project emerged, why Fernandez’s well written script and De Felitta’s directing style helped attract an incredible cast, how the actors approached their characters and brought the fascinating story to life, De Felitta’s unique collaboration with »

White Of The Eye: Blu-ray Review

17 March 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Donald Cammell. Review: Adam Wing. Donald Cammell only made four movies, but his life off screen was far more eventful than the time he spent behind the camera. Cammell was born in Scotland, and wrote and co-directed his first feature, Performance, with Nicholas Roeg in 1968. Roeg got most of the credit for that film and achieved greater success as a result, but despite numerous attempts, Cammell didn't make another feature until Demon Seed in 1977. Shortly after his fourth film, 1995's Wild Side, Cammell committed suicide in Hollywood, the only place he had ever wanted to make movies. Furthermore, his wife claimed the wound was not immediately fatal and that he had asked for a mirror so that he could watch himself die. A claim that's been refuted by several sources since. You can see why the connection was made though, because he was certainly attracted to death, and his third film, »

Rob the Mob | Review

Dog Eat Dog: De Felitta’s Entertaining Take of a Take

After the success of his 2009 indie feature, City Island, Raymond De Felitta turns to a scrappy ‘based on a true story’ vehicle with Rob the Mob, a film that manages to override predispositions and assume an energetic momentum that is both rewarding and engaging. An interestingly varied cast, populated by a several faces instantly recognizable from either “The Sopranos” or various Martin Scorsese films, provides the film with immediate likeability, an entertaining mix of mafia history and character study.

In 1991, while the Gotti trial holds everyone’s rapt attention, Tommy (Michael Pitt) is paroled after getting busted for holding up a floral shop with girlfriend Rosie (Nina Arianda). While Rosie has kicked drugs and a life of crime to clean up her act, she now works as a star performer at a collection agency run by Dave Lovell (Griffin Dunne »

Miami Film Review: ‘Rob the Mob’

16 March 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two decades after serving as semi-light relief for Big Apple newspaper editors in the heady days of the John Gotti trial, the richly improbable story of Tommy and Rosemarie Uva gets lively, compassionate treatment in the latest likable effort from practised East Coast portraitist Raymond De Felitta. Though the film reunites De Felitta with Andy Garcia, the star and producer of 2010′s “City Island,” the spotlight is ceded to sparky younger stars Michael Pitt and Nina Arianda as a Bronx-reared Bonnie and Clyde who hit on a novel, elegant and inevitably ill-fated get-rich-quick scheme: holding up and cleaning out Mafia social clubs, knowing their victims would keep the law out of it. Graced with good humor, seamy period texture and a particularly sensational turn from Arianda, this otherwise unassuming pic – premiered at the Miami Film Festival – opens in limited release on March 21, and should do its best business in ancillary. »
