This is a difficult movie to follow, but worth the effort.

Waste of time. Dark, un-connected thoughts. Watched bonus features hoping to get some clairity but that didnt help. Seemed like a goid topic but wasnt executed very well. Guess Im in the minority though.

This was defiantly a different type of movie than I am use to. It was kinda weird I thought I see from reading the other comments a lot of people liked it, but I honesty I thought it was a waste of my time by the end of it. I was getting confused with the two characters since both were the same guy so sometimes it was kinda hard to keep up on knowing who was who. Idk maybe I should watch it one more time just to be able to feel it a bit better.

The film has a certain style that I like, and initially shows promise. However, in the end it falls flat. Disappointing.

While this got a rave rating from Rotten Tomatoes (86 fresh), my wife and I found it trite, poorly produced, terrible sound quality and not worth the time to watch. It is based on an old Russian novella so is naturally dark and brooding. Written for a younger generation that has little first hand knowledge of the trials of living in the USSR, we did not care for it at all.

Didn't realize there were 2 movies with the same name but totally different subjects. My mistake for not checking properly. This was a totally boring movie.

I usually like Artsy films but this one NOT! Maybe Jesse had something to do with it as I am not fond of him. the film was boring and weird and not in an interesting way.

I thought it was fine and very funny. The film is based on Dostoyevski, one of THE most significant artists in history and he isn't light fare, though the film has laugh out loud moments. It is set in a very grim and dismal environs through which Eisenberg playing two lead characters meanders about - one "like pinochio, a wooden toy on strings", the other a bon vivant manipulative card. All the acting is top notch. I give it 4 stars.

James to Melanie: But you need to realize that data entry and collection and computers and stuff, it can be sensual. It does have a romance. It can be sexy. All these lives that we're recording, their hopes, their dreams, their loves...Each person out there,
apart yet connected. We're giving these faceless people immortality.
===============
Simon: No, it's just...I don't know, I would have never done that (after James demanded special order from waitress).
James: You don't like eggs?
Simon: No, I mean, I just...Don't think I would feel comfortable talking to someone like that.
James: She's a waitress. She's here to serve us. If you don't tell her what you actually want, how can she do her job?
Simon: No, I can see that...She can be a little short sometimes, and I do think being forthright certainly has its place. And I'm not, like, criticizing your behavior or anything.
