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.
A brutal, beautiful fusion of The Vanishing, A History of Violence, Mulholland Drive and Les Diaboliques, The Double Hour is a haunting meditation on grief and guilt masquerading as an intense ... murder mystery.
The knockout climax comes about two-thirds of the way through the film, rendering the tail end a punch-drunk afterthought, but that doesn't detract from the clinic in critical suspense that Capotondi gives in the film's first hour.
