a Great film with a great performance by the amazing jeremy irons, playing two characters in a leading role is something very difficult, but jeremy did it great.

Though the characters only really enter a Cronenbergian parallel reality in the third act when those... instruments... are commissioned, Dead Ringers is a creepfest from the beginning. It just plays on more subtle elements than traditional horror fare. Some people are creeped out by identical twins, and there's some of that here, paying off with the idea that two brothers share the same women without telling them. That they're gynecologists could make both genders squirm for different reasons, especially once one of them goes off the deep end and becomes dangerous. But beyond the twinning, it's a film about co-dependent relationships and their potential toxicity. Jeremy Irons has to track two characters, dissimilar in attitude, but "synchronizing" as the story unfolds, the more timid one trying to break the bond and suffering a breakdown in identity as a result. If he only sees mutant women, it's that he's part of a singular genetic ecosystem where everyone else is an "other", so could he really ever leave it? Self-actualization in this case leads to madness and tragedy.

This is an exceptional psychologically horror film, Jeremy Irons is extraordinary in the lead role, he should have won an Oscar.
