It's been three solid years since poofy-haired comedian Richard Ayoade - best known for his parts on Garth Marenghi's Dark Place
and The IT Crowd
- wowed audiences in Toronto with his debut directorial feature Submarine
, a film that proved to be a great favorite in these parts. For his sophomore effort Ayoade adapts Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Double
with Jesse Eisenberg in a dual lead role as a man confronted with an exact duplicate of himself. We've had the chance to see the film already and it's absolutely fabulous, check out an excerpt of the forthcoming review below:
What we have here is a fiercely intelligent, hugely idiosyncratic talent
who is seemingly capable of going in any great number of directions and
making all of them entirely his own. Two films is too soon by far to be
labeling someone a master but Ayoade stands alongside Ben Wheatley as
vibrant proof that the future of British film is both quite odd and
very, very bright. The Double is simply fantastic.
So, yes. It's quite good. And now you can get a proper taste as The Guardian have premiered the first trailer for the picture
. Check it out below.
