There's the surface level story as given in the movie's premise (a man seeking out his doppelganger, and getting more than he bargained for), and the movie can be enjoyed purely on that level as a creepy thriller. The movie can also be enjoyed on another level entirely, and there's no twists or tricks here, despite what you may have heard. If you're waiting for "the truth" to be revealed at the end like it's a Saw movie, you will be disappointed. All the pieces are there for you to put together, if you have the patience...the movie is only 90 minutes long. Millions of people sit through 150-minute long Transformers movies every few years, so do give this movie a try.

Light spoilers/hints:

Don't assume everything you're seeing in regards to Adam and Anthony is the literal truth. But pay close attention to how every other character reacts to them. Everything the other characters do is true and reveals what's really happening.

MAJOR SPOILERS (If you just want to know already):

It's pretty clearly telegraphed throughout the movie that they are the same person. Anthony is Adam's past. Adam confronting Anthony is actually Adam facing up to the fact that he used to be a total jerk, and was reverting to that persona to his pregnant wife (which explains her distress with Anthony, and her happiness/acceptance when Adam takes Anthony's place). It wasn't a coincidence that Adam's coworker suggested that particular movie to watch...he had seen it, and recognized Adam/Anthony in it from his acting days. Mary freaking out at Anthony's wedding ring tan wasn't panic over realizing Anthony was a fake, the whole scene was a memory from the past when Mary discovered that her boyfriend was actually married to someone else, and was cheating with her.

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.

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 Anthony'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.
