June 6, 2019
A nice, pleasant and thoroughly entertaining antidote to typical multiplex fare

Paired with Clive Owen and working with the creator of Michael Clayton -- Tony Gilroy -- Roberts shines in this complex and intelligent thriller.

The trouble is that Gilroy quickly strands what should have been a smart high concept thriller somewhere between a popcorn movie and a brooding paranoia thriller. So, the only person Gilroy ends up conning is himself.

Writer-director Tony Gilroy loads the fun script with complex double-crosses, but the payoff lacks the righteous punch of his previous film, "Michael Clayton."

Not highly recommended at all.

You simply haven't had this much fun at the multiplex in a long, long time.

Tony Gilroy's directorial follow up to the phenomenal Michael Clayton is an impressive addition to his short but impressive filmography.

I'm sure if I saw it a second time, I'd find the little hints Gilroy plants throughout particularly delicious. But why bother? It didn't exactly grab me by the neck the first time.

Julia Roberts and Clive Owen are reunited for the first time since Closer, and they're a messed up couple again. But this time they're secret agents, which is cooler.

When it comes to sorting out where we stand with someone, we're all spies. Tony Gilroy realizes that romance done right involves invigorating risk, and "Duplicity" offers a bracing, beguiling shell game of behavior to complement the light shenanigans.

A brain-bending, sleekly twisted puzzle.

Duplicity derives its juice not only from Gilroy's direction but from the potent and sparkling pairing of Roberts and Owen. They match, they fit.

It might be saying something that I preferred to see [Giamatti and Wilkinson] in action than the two actual leads of the film.

Duplicity features the sort of story screenwriters dream of crafting in order to show off their aptitude.
August 25, 2009
The results are mistimed and misshapen, like Lubitsch after a vasectomy
August 22, 2009
The film's greatest pleasure is in the snappy dialogue Gilroy crafts for the capable duo of Roberts and Owen... [Blu-ray]
August 21, 2009
You gotta be flawless to tell a story out of sequence. This ain't no Memento. God, Julia is getting old.
August 14, 2009
It's not unfair to say that Duplicity is Michael Clayton on laughing gas. What's remarkable is that both movies pretty much work.
August 2, 2009
A stylish, engaging and complex thriller.

[Tony] Gilroy may have taken his time honing his voice as a filmmaker, but there's little doubt that he's got it down to a science at this point.
