Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
If, like me, you would rather get lost in a noir than try to second-guess its creators, "The Double Hour" is the best movie of its kind since the French director Guillaume Canet's hit from 2006, "Tell No One."Stephen Holden, New York Times, 04.14.2011
The more you try to solve the narrative puzzle, the more you may want to watch it again - or at least argue about what's real.Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 05.11.2011
It's a wild tale that's so full of surprises, reversals and double-jointed plot twists that you wouldn't think there'd be room for anything else. But there is.Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, 04.28.2011
A psychological thriller that is very heavy on the mumbo-jumbo.Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, 04.15.2011
