David Cronenberg closed out the 1980's with this dark thriller about two identical twins and the bond they share. Like many of Cronenberg's films, it may not be one the most accessible flicks you watch on a blind viewing. It begins very well, giving a glimpse at the strange life these two men have and their effective schemes they execute on everyone they encounter. Jeremy Irons plays both roles extremely well, anchoring the film with a wide range of character moods and effective dialogue. Unfortunately, the films starts to slip though during the final act, becoming a little too convoluted as you try to decipher which twin is going through changes. I have to say though I will probably re-visit this film, if not for Irons great performance and the eerie atmosphere. If your a fan of Cronenberg's work though you will be right at home with this one.
