Love it or hate it: “Duplicity” on DVD

Some movies unite us, some movies divide us, and “Duplicity” is a perfect example of the latter. I loved Tony Gilroy’s twisty caper about a pair of dueling corporate operatives (Clive Owen and Julia Roberts, both sparkling) and their bigwig bosses (the great Tom Wilkinson and Paul Giamatti). And, when I reviewed it in March, reaction was all over the map. “Excruciating,” “a bunch of nothing,” “couldn’t wait to get out of the theater,” wrote some commenters, But then, in emails to me, I heard comments like “what a great movie — smart, beautiful and unexpected” and “terrifically entertaining and intelligent.”
So be it; nothing’s more boring than a movie that everyone agrees is “just OK,” and certainly nobody felt that way about “Duplicity.” Anyway, it’s out on DVD today, just in case anyone missed it (and, judging by its dismal box-office record, a fair number of you did). Check it out; I guarantee you’ll have a strong opinion.
