Movies about twins often deal with cutesy plots like kids repairing their parents' severed relationship. Here's one that deals with severed heads: The Devil's Double, the story of how one of nepotism's worst creations, Uday Hussein, surgically manipulated a man to become his likeness -- in appearance, and tendency to do just really horrible things. Check out the trailer above for a graphic depiction of 1987 Baghdad, a world of sex, drugs, and torturous violence, including acts even more reprehensible than forgetting to keep the shower curtain taut, which can slowly kill you with mildew. But nothing's gratuitous: this cinematic tour de force is a wildly entertaining look at how a man's identity is deformed when he's forced to embrace absolute freedom under threat of death, a deadly dichotomy absolutely nailed by Dominic Cooper playing both Hussein and lookalike Latif Yahia -- an even more difficult assignment than playing Professor Klump and another overweight person.
Scope the clip above, then head here for more info on The Devil's Double, which hits select theaters on July 29th. If you miss it, it will be a really horrible thing.
