5.0 out of 5 stars a film I had to own June 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'll be honest, part of the reason I wanted to see this film was because of the avalanche of 1-star reviews, many of which admit to having watched only 20-30 minutes before stopping it altogether. One thing that has become painfully obvious to me is the de-evolution of the human attention span to that of the average fruit fly. Actually, a fruit fly seems pretty capable of focusing on something for more than 20 seconds, people, not so much. I also enjoyed "Prisoners" and found it terribly compelling, despite some flaws and issues, but I was intrigued to see a film where Gyllenhaal got to inhabit two distinctly different characters. I usually find that a pretty cheesy concept and execution but what makes the performances in this film so mesmerizing to me is the way he creates such distinct, separate beings without really changing their physical appearance much at all. It's purely about the energy, intention, the posture, the way one walks versus the other, vocal authority and even breathing are distinguished from one another subtly but enough so that you know which character you're dealing with, instantly. That's extraordinary work, and I credit Gyllenhaal and Villaneuve with creating those differences together in a way that doesn't dumb anything down for the audience. I also found Sarah Gadon to be an absolute wonder; the scene on the benches with Gyllenhaal had me dumbfounded by the complex array of emotions she was able to project with absolute clarity and stunning realism. She is the heart of the film, in my opinion, and I look forward to seeing more from her in the future.

The pacing on this is quiet, slow, tense and completely draws you in, the way that "2001" did, or "The Shining", or "Alien"...

It's very difficult to decipher, and you have to really think about things like symbolism. Nothing is handed to the viewer. I'm not surprised by all the one-star reviews, but if you like a movie that forces you to think about what you just watched--rather than merely entertain you (which is also a lot of fun, don't get me wrong), you might just enjoy this movie. Plus, there's always Youtube for explanations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Mystery April 7, 2014
By Blood
Format:Amazon Instant Video
There are very few actors that can continue to surprise me in every role they take on, reinventing themselves each time they're on screen, and Jake Gyllenhaal is nearing the top of that list. The name alone may not be something you recognize, but you've probably seen him as the exhilarating lead in "Source Code" and several other films like "End of Watch" and last year's "Prisoners". He's one of the most underrated people in Hollywood, and almost always provides an impeccable performance that won't let you forget his face. His latest part in the mind-bending mystery `Enemy' does just the same, and he proves once again how spectacular he can be.

This slow burning thriller follows a depressed history professor named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who unexpectedly, while watching a movie, discovers an actor who could be his twin. On a mission to meet this man, he stalks, and eventually finds him. We see their lives quickly become intertwined, even if it may not be in the greatest of ways. Intriguing and ultimately fascinating, this is one of the most interesting and odd movies of the year.

It certainly isn't for everyone, with a `love it or hate it' type of response, but I was totally engaged and couldn't take my eyes off of it. It may not be universally loved, but I found it to be a daring movie that needs to be watched more than once to completely grasp. Rated R for language and sexual content, "Enemy" needs to be seen to be believed.

This is an open-ended (described as a "spiral") story that can be interpreted in several ways and will leave you with more questions than answers. If you are looking for something linear, look elsewhere.

This work has a cult classic feel to it. That doesn't mean it will become a cult classic, but if you like slightly dark, mysterious, medium-paced, "think pieces", then give this one a try.

I especially liked the audio. It's overboard, but really adds to the edgy feel of this movie.

Dark and twisty, Enemy will mess with your mind and if you like this type of movie, it will have you re-watching for all the subtle clues and hints that help to explain the story. I say "help to explain" because ultimately, there is no simple, straight-line narrative to follow as you think about what you watched. Filmed in a hazy, brownish-yellow tint, it feels as sinister and creepy as a nightmare as you follow history teacher Adam Bell on a frightening journey that even he cannot explain. Jake Gyllenhaal in the dual roles of Adam and his exact double Anthony (an actor) is incredible. How can two identical men - who have never met each other - be so different in every aspect of their personalities? Something is going on in all this murkiness that Adam's wife finds deeply disturbing, much more so than her husband's usual casual infidelities. The final shocking, eerie scene may leave an indelible image burned into your brain - and send you back for another viewing when you try to put all the pieces together. The best approach to this movie may be to experience it on an emotional, psychological level rather than as just another, albeit superior, thriller.
