5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movies and performances of the year. A must see that will leave you talking. Oscars take note! I say A+, November 11, 2011
This review is from: The Devil's Double (DVD)
"Uday has chosen you, you belong to him." This is the true story of Latif Yahia (Cooper) and how he was hand picked by Uday Hussein (Cooper) to be his body double. Latif is stuck in the middle of becoming someone he hates and getting killed by saying no. This is another type of movie that will not get the audience that it deserves. Cooper, who plays a duel role, give quite possibly the year's best acting performance and is deserving of at least an Oscar nomination. Playing both the egotistical, sex-crazed, evil Uday and the poor, family oriented good guy Latif. The performance of the two polar opposites are so great that you sometimes forget it's the same person even when they are in the same scene. This is a very emotional movie, and even though you know how it will end you keep waiting for something bad to happen to Uday while pulling for Latif to be free. The acting all around is fantastic and the movie is a must see. This is a movie that is almost impossible to not have strong feelings of hatred toward Uday, and it brings back all the feelings you had while this reign was still in power. Overall, a great movie with great acting, especially an Oscar worthy performance by Dominic Cooper. Watch this. I give it an A+.

Oscar?
We'll see.
I'm sure the Academy will shy away from any film that even remotely or implicitly endorses Bush II's removal of the Hussein thugs.
Hope I'm wrong.
