Words By David Ramos
The Devil’s Double is the horrific true story of Latif Yahia a captain in the Iraqi army who was forced to become Uday Hussains, body double. Without a doubt one of the best films of 2011. Dominic Cooper as Uday Hussian/Latif Yahia completely dominates the film and gives a fascinating insight into the mind of one of the most evil men in history.
Even with the gruelling task of having to play opposite himself (which is tough for any actor) Cooper delivers an amazing performance both as the psychotic Uday Hussian and the frustrated, imprisoned Latif Yahia. This is one of those films that just has it all violence, drugs, sex and plot twists. Defiantly not a film for the faint hearted as the exploits of Udays antics such as murder, drug abuse and rape can become quite graphic and at times spine chilling.
