WERE YOU DUPED BY DUPLICITY?
“Duplicity” ia another example of “the emperors new clothes.” (No one wants to admit they don’t understand it.) There are may reviews praising Julia
Roberts and Clive Owen
and their spicy dialog, but few reviewers seem to bring up the fact that the PLOT is a convoluted mess, almost impossible to understand. It seems most reviewers are afraid to confess they couldn’t figure out what the heck is going on in this story. It’s exhausting trying to keep the flashbacks and flashforwards straight. The movie has some very appealing scenes and characters, but is it really out of line to expect a plot that a person with normal observational powers can follow? Did any readers out there really understand this film?
