    interesting concept, decent acting..but slow moving and film turns on its side from ghost /horror to more of a comedy..I ultimately gave up on this one!

    This film seems to have people who really like it or really don't. I suppose I fall somewhere in between. After enjoying Cure so much, I was expecting as good of or better film but overall, wasn't too bad. Technically, this was a nicely shot movie and there were some interesting ideas at work. A lot of care was taken in framing and blocking. The editing was also quite impressive with a number of instances where the screen was split into two or three segments showing the different sides of Hayasaki and his ghostly twin. The acting was good from all involved and everyone was trying their best with what they were given. In the end, I felt Doppelganger fell victim to lazy writing. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=doppelkswa.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/doppelkswa.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    Fun and intelligent film wrongly marketed as a horror film. As I watched it, I was a little disappointed that it wasn't what I expected it to be, but once it was finished I realized I still enjoyed it a lot and it stuck with me. As long as you know that about half way through this film it changes gears entirely, it should make for an easier watch. It's also nice to see directors try something different, no matter how outlandish.

    I saw this a while ago but it seems that Flixster has added it only now. Not that I really care, because this is Kiyoshi Kurosawa's worst movie by a mile. I honestly cannot remember a single thing about the plot except that it lacked any sort of conflict or character development. The one scene I can recall is when Koji Yakusho freaked out and destroyed a bunch of equipment because goddamn, at least he was DOING something. This is the movie that made me wonder if KK is pulling the wool over my eyes with the rest of his films. That's kind of a harsh assessment for a director that I really adore, but seriously, the man gets his screenplays right one out of five times. It's kind of admirable that he just says "fuck it" to those cinematic conventions, but a lot of the time they exist for a reason. Someone send this man a decent script!
