Notes from the attic: The Devil's Double

Look at this gilt masterpiece---isn't it a wonder? We here at Ragtag (well, some of us) have admired its regal beauty for some time (we didn't end up getting the film, but 9th Street Video has it). We've been enjoying the poster for so long we figured it was time to actually watch the movie. And it was okay. I was entertained for that hour and forty-eight minutes...though it is a little long. The Devil's Double is the story of Saddam Hussein's son Uday, his pressed body double, and all his insane Caligula-like antics.  What a man.
