The Double (2014) by Richard Ayoade
Wow, not only was I cruelly disappointed, but worse, I was bored senseless. I thought Submarine was such a wonderful debut — Wes Anderson’s Rushmore with British flavour. This one, I don’t know… Brazil meetsFight Club meets a multitude of others?… Whatever Ayoade’s meant to achieve with The Double, he’s clearly still trying to find his voice. I’m sure he’ll get there with the next one.
