The Double Hour Reviews

Laura Clifford
Reeling Reviews

Too many of the film's curiosities are explained away with a cliched device, but Capotondi has created an unsettling mood which creeps beneath the skin.

A modest and modestly effective Italian thriller with a supernatural twist.

most of The Double Hour doesn't really need to exist in order for the viewer to process the impact of the finale

Ambitious and intelligent, expect to see a Hollywood remake.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Every 10 minutes, writer-director Giuseppe Capotondi reshuffles his narrative deck of cards and deals the audience a completely new hand. Just when you think you're ahead of the game, you've been played for a sucker.

Don't let anyone spill the beans and tell you too much before you get a chance to sit through all the twists and turns in this mind-blowing experience.

Loey Lockerby
Kansas City Star

The final resolution is easily forgotten, more of an afterthought than anything else. The fun is in the twisting, absurd journey, not the destination.

Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

There are only so many times a thriller can reveal that everything you thought you knew was wrong before it becomes fundamentally untrustworthy.

Creative Loafing

The Double Hour obviously wants to be compared to efforts by the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, Brian De Palma and Christopher Nolan, but it's ultimately like watching a child clamoring to sit at the table of the grownups.

It keeps you off-balance, constantly assessing and reassessing.

One Guy's Opinion

A twisty thriller that keeps you engaged for the duration, but in the final analysis proves not nearly as smart or clever as it thinks it is.

The Double Hour is ultimately a mystery box that lacks a treasure at its core.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

It's so entertainingly convoluted that the minute it ends, you want to watch it again to see if it plays fair.

Duane Dudek

It's a Moebius strip of a tale about two equally suspicious people who appear to fall in love.

Capotondi's nerve-shredding puzzler will delight fans of Hitchcock and Polanski.

Steve Persall
Tampa Bay Times

Capotondi's debut is a twisty-turny psychological thriller suggesting he's someone to watch. Like the genre's best - the Coens, Polanski, Hitchcock - Capotondi builds dread with wicked winks at the audience, dropping subtle surprises along the way.

Justin Strout
Orlando Weekly

The movie boasts a deep, rich color palette, sensual movement and a psychological thriller angle that frightens and captivates. The only factor it's missing is a destination.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A promising suspense film from Italy that loses its way not in the multiple twists of its clever narrative but in a dispiriting fog of mind games and art-house pretensions...

Suffers from being too clever for its own good and too manipulative.

"The Double Hour" is a tremendously entertaining take on film noir, with all the usual elements of the genre in play - crime, death, possibly murder and doomed romance. I think.
