Number of Times Seen – 1 (27 Apr 2014)
Brief Synopsis – A history professor discovers an actor who looks like him and decided to try and find out if they are related.
My Take on it – I have to admit that I liked the premise of this movie, but just don’t understand what they tried to do with it.
This movie leaves way too much open to interpretation and also throws at the viewer many unexplained images that we don’t know what to make of.
The idea of potentially finding your doppelganger is interesting, but there are just too many similar images shared between the two characters that it’s very easy to get confused as to which character you are watching when.
This is perhaps one of those movies that makes more sense upon multiple viewings but in order to get me interested in seeing this again, they need to get me more interested in the story the first time around, and they just weren’t able to do that here.
Bottom Line – Interesting premise, but I think this movie largely fails. Perhaps it’s better after watching it a few times, but I don’t plan on finding out.
Rating – Razzie Worthy
