Inspired by Dostoevsky’s 1846 The Double: A Petersburg Poem, Ayoade’s tale of a timid man who discovers he has a doppelgänger at the office—a facsimile who possesses all the charm, charisma, and cleverness he lacks—creates a near-dystopian vision of contemporary society. (Richard Ayoade, 2013, DCP, 93 minutes)
