Enemy is a glacially paced Canadian film shot in Toronto about a man who discovers that he has a true doppelganger and sets out to make contact with him. The story places a lot of emphasis on the mysterious atmosphere and genuine events are scarce. There are so many scenes with endless awkward pauses and silent stares but I didn't find the effect particularly riveting. As entertainment, this film is just okay and if there is a deeper meaning, I wasn't interested enough to look for it.

The limited Special Features in the Blu-ray package consist of only four very short extras with cast and crew giving their thoughts. Rated R (USA), UK 15, 14A (BC, Ontario) - sex, nudity and profanity.

This movie is not for everyone, and that is why I give it a 4 star rating. I say this because it is targeting an audience more interested in watching the movie multiple times to understand the hidden meanings to there full extent. Otherwise a fairly decent movie to watch. Denis Villeneuve is coming out strong with movies like Enemy. Also check out his other movies such as Sicario and Prisoners, amazing movies.

Open ended, mysterious and ambiguous film which will leave you wondering and thinking. Do not watch if you like your movies with all loose ends tied up neatly at the end. Nothing here is spelled out for you. Performances are riveting. It is very moody, and creepy so if you like atmospheric films like this, you will enjoy.

Adam Bell (Jake Gyllenhaal ) is an insecure boring History Professor who lectures on ways governments control us. His world lacks color and the backgrounds are symbolically drab. He has a hot girlfriend (Mélanie Laurent) that he can't seem to satisfy. Upon watching a locally made film he sees his double. He seeks him out only to freak out upon meeting. Why? I don't know, but they both did. Mom (Isabella Rossellini) seems to know something but pretends she doesn't. Adam is her only child.

There is also the symbolism of the weird opening scene involving a number of men looking at a nude masturbating woman and a big spider. There is also a large spider looming over the city where wires and broken windshields look like a web which turns a mystery thriller into a sci-fi film.i.e This is either an odd art film filled with symbolism or science fiction...or both.

Or it could be that the guy is simply bonkers living a double life which makes the whole film stupid and a waste of time.

F-bomb, sex, and nudity (Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon)

Canadian director Dennis Villeneuve’s 2014 film Enemy has one of the more confusing and shocking endings in a movie this year. It’s one of these endings that might make you want to rewatch the film again right away.

Jake Gyllenhaal is Adam Bell, a college history professor who’s going about his average life with his girlfriend, who’s played by Mélanie Laurent, who you’d remember from Inglourious Basterds.

One night Adam watches a movie randomly recommended to him by a co-worker. There’s nothing particularly memorable in the film except one thing that is keeping Adam up at night. An actor in the background of one scene appears to be Adam’s exact physical double.

He starts to go a little crazy as he tries to track down this actor. When he eventually does, Adam only ends up with more questions and no answers.

The actor, Anthony, also played by Jake Gyllenhaal of course, is a very different sort of person in how he behaves, much more confident and threatening. He’s as confounded by the fact that he has a double as Adam is. But when Adam tries to walk away and forget about it, Anthony starts to follow him. And eventually winds up seeing Adam’s girlfriend and becomes attracted to her.

So, the movie is a movie about doppelgangers and switching places with someone, living their lives and maybe deciding you’d rather live theirs than your own.

That right there is enough for a decent movie.

But there’s a whole other side to this movie that makes it so memorable to me. Throughout the film, Adam is having these dreams involving spiders. If you have arachnophobia, this movie is not for you.

Due to the nature of the story, it is best if I don't narrate it here and leave it a surprise for the viewer.

Along with Nightcrawler, this was a second low-key indie performance by Gyllenhaal this year. Although this is classified as a sci-fi, this is more of a slow drama and Gyllenhaal excels in it. I expected a much more meatier role for Melanie Laurent, probably because I had seen her in a much better role in Inglorious Basterds. But, she has a small role and plays it well, I think. The entire movie is carried by Gyllenhaal on his back, and he is able to do that considering the fact that he is one of his generation's best actors.

When the movie began, I thought it must have been shot in one of the post-Soviet Union countries due to the type of buildings that appeared in the shot. I must say I was surprised when in the middle of the movie it is revealed that the story is taking place in Toronto, and not some post-Soviet cities. That really surprised me. And, the ending was one of those "what the hell" kind of endings, and reminded me of Gyllenhaal's Donnie Darko. All in all, a good drama that is shot and acted well. Gyllenhaal keeps showing why he is one of the best of his generation.
