The Guardian - Henry Barnes
The Double isn't an original idea. It wasn't even in Dostoyevsky's time. But it's a great story. And Ayoade has produced a brilliant copy.
91
The Playlist - Kevin Jagernauth
Totally bonkers, hilarious and wickedly clever, The Double is special and singular filmmaking at its best.
91
IndieWire - Eric Kohn
The story arrives at a satisfying emotional conclusion with wonderfully thoughtful ramifications.
80
Empire - David Hughes
Given the obvious influences on The Double, it could have felt like a facsimile of other films. Instead, it has enough individuality, imagination and idiosyncratic invention to identify it as a true original.

Film.com - Calum Marsh
The Double taps into a deep reservoir of psychic turmoil even as it navigates the script’s abundant jokes, and the nightmare of the heart of the film is doubtless universal.
