Ayoade’s second film is a confident adaptation of Dostoevsky’s second novel where put upon underdog data processor Simon James has to deal with a more talented and confident double James Simon appearing on the scene and interfering with his life, career and love aspirations in a retro-dystopian world shot in sludge-green and grime-grey. No one else seems to notice or care
