Critic Reviews of "The Double"Globe and MailJune 13, 2014
The film's bleakness is almost satirical. It's Brazil drained of the daydreams.Toronto StarJune 12, 2014
The Double invites second looks and close examination. As Simon finds when peering into mirrors, what we see is often unexpected.Philadelphia InquirerMay 23, 2014
The Double doesn't get very deep, but it does get interesting.Seattle TimesMay 22, 2014
"The Double" has a theatrical, self-conscious quality to it; the performances feel stagy and its production design looks like a grimly monotone Wes Anderson movie.Boston GlobeMay 15, 2014
"The Double" is a striking piece of work, but it's nostalgic for a kind of paranoia that may no longer exist. There are different things to frighten us now.Washington PostMay 15, 2014
Most of the time, "The Double" feels less like watching a book than reading a movie.Flicks.co.nzMarch 10, 2017
There are many hilarious gags and performances (the TV show within the film is spectacular), but the film is also full of devastatingly sad moments of loneliness that will leave you feeling like a wooden Pinocchio.The Film StageJune 27, 2016
Ayoade has crafted a smart, high-concept puzzler with a keen sense of comedic timing and a fine cast littered with familiar faces.Laramie Movie ScopeJanuary 01, 2015
Although Existentialism is out of fashion these days, I think a lot of people will be able to identify with Simon's plight in this film. It works as both absurdest comedy and as social commentary.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsDecember 06, 2014
Bleak dark comedy about contemporary urban alienation.The Berks-Mont NewsAugust 25, 2014
Despite its pleasures, the film proves ultimately little more than an echo, forgoing a thorough exploration of its themes for a more literal approach that treads close to lip service.Movie TalkAugust 25, 2014
Ayoade brilliantly pulls off his film's mix of queasy paranoia and off-kilter comedy.
