Yeah, we know, the film came out last month, but after dropping The Best Films Of 2014 So Far..., "The Double" is back on our minds. It indeed is one of the finest pieces of cinema from the first six months of the year, but what can often be lost in the discussing the film's many accomplishments is how much it rests entirely on the chemistry between director Richard Ayoade and star Jesse Eisenberg. Well, you can see just why they got on so well in this recent interview.

The Double, Eisenberg

Yeah, we know, the film came out last month, but after dropping The Best Films Of 2014 So Far..., "The Double" is back on our minds. It indeed is one of the finest pieces of cinema from the first six months of the year, but what can often be lost in the discussing the film's many accomplishments is how much it rests entirely on the chemistry between director Richard Ayoade and star Jesse Eisenberg. Well, you can see just why they got on so well in this recent interview.

With the film now arriving in Canada, the pair stopped by "Q with Jian Ghomeshi," and it's pretty loose and fun. Ayoade in particular seems to have grown tired of what's been an extended press run for the movie, and instead uses every question as a opportunity to riff and only when prodded, gets back to seriously answering the question at hand. It results in Eisenberg largely playing spectator, but clearly having a blast watching the filmmaker improvise all over the place, and you can hear him laughing throughout. It reveals the easy respect and rapport the two have, an ingredient that made the success of "The Double" all the richer. Watch below.
