i'm a sucker for its moral, portrayed in such an obscure symbolic way. also, Elisabeth moss is making her way into my favorites list- her acting is fab in Queen of Earth and in mini-series Top of the Lake as well.
I love when I watch a movie and am completely blindsided when it side steps my expectations and sucker punches me with how good it is. Admittedly I knew next to nothing of its clever dark comedic elements and thought I was getting some quirky indie drama. Instead I got a Twilight Zone two-parter written by Rod Serling and Charlie Kaufman. The drama left a bruise at the end but I was definitely impressed.
Feels like a 20 minute festival gem or a really solid stage play that has accidentally become a feature - there's very little cinematic about it. Still, a neat concept, good script, with some nice acting, plus it slots nicely into the 'don't read about it before you see it' canon of filmmaking.
Fantasia '14 Mark Duplass and Elizabeth Moss are great here in dual roles in this clever slip of a sci-fi comedy. A couple head to a countryside cottage for a private weekend on the advise of their therapist only to find doppelgangers of themselves. When the wife falls in love with the doppelganger...complications arise. Sounds trite but the performances make this one memorable and fun. The leads have chemistry.
