Subtle, very eerie examination of the mental deterioration between identical twins. Two brilliant minds become strained through questionable medical studies, female relationships, and drug use. The whole conceit is that both start out as bipolar personalities and eventually become part of one whole. They find that neither cannot live without the other. The finale brings about this point in an emotional, somewhat confounding manner that left me a bit cold. There's a constant uneasy mood with a depressing undertone present. Jeremy Irons gives an understated, completely engrossing performance as both twin brothers. That alone is worth the watch.
