Kick-Back Friday: #83
Duplicity (2009): Who’s setting up whommmmm in this lust-love affair between an ex-CIA agent with racehorse legs* (Julia Roberts) and an impossibly hot ex-MI6 agent (Clive Owen)?
Absurdity is the foundation of the ridiculously self-important world of corporate spying between 2 rival conglomerates, each headed up by Paul Giamatti and Tom Wilkinson—and neither of whommmmm gets enough screen time for my taste. Giamatti, in particular, is absolutely flawless when rallying his shareholders.
P.S. Skip the self-congratulatory commentary** with writer/director Tony Gilroy.
* Phrase blatently stolen from somebody.
** Despite the fact that Gilroy denies the commentary is self-congratulatory.
