Simon James ( Jesse Eisenberg), buried in a bland, bureaucratic job where he is unable to win  the attentions of Hannah (Mia Wasikowska), is  so unremarkable that the security guard at work  routinely asks him to produce his ID. One day,  James Simon (also Jesse Eisenberg), Simon’s out- going doppelgänger, shows up at the office and turns Simon’s world upside down. This isn’t an unusual plot, but The Double is made fresh by director Richard Ayoade (Submarine), who uncorks a visual gag reel loaded with bright colors, unusual sets, and inventive camerawork reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s Brazil. The result is forgettable, but it’s fun while it lasts. Rated R. 93 minutes. Jean Cocteau Cinema, Santa Fe. See review.
