Controversial documentary purports to tell the tale of a former body double of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's son Uday.
The Devil's Double is a dramatization of author and ex-soldier Latif Yahia's claims of having served as a body double for former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's son Uday as told in his 2003 book of the same name, providing viewers with a chilling look into the inner machinations of the Hussein regime from someone who'd claimed to have been there. Released to mixed-to-positive critical reviews, the veracity of The Devil's Double has since come under questioning from Irish journalists and the CIA, with officials from the American intelligence agency claiming no knowledge of Yahia's existence prior to his book's release.
