enemy movie


Someone who actually looks at my Tumblr requested that I watch and post about the Jake Gyllenhaal movie Enemy.  My review of the film is simply this: Jake G has a great motherfucking agent.  He is just in the straight up coolest movies.  He is a cute guy but somehow has avoided being in a million chick flicks.  Instead every movie he is in is more unique, bizarre, and dark then the last (below).  Enemy is no exception.  It is a captivating idea for a plot that is carried out in a way that just gives you the heebie jeebies.  


Films watched in 2014.

Film 77: Enemy (Denis Villeneuve, 2013)

Nota: 7/10

El caos es un orden por descifrar

Denis Villeneuve se introduce en el mundo de los doppëlganger con un estilo pesadillesco y una atmósfera asfixiante e intrigante. Un thriller que te deja cavilando durante horas.

Enemy (dir. Denis Villeneuve).

Villeneuve and Gyllenhaal have created an expertly made thriller about doubles with the loosest of narratives but the maximum amount of tension and intrigue. Enemy is heavy on themes of dread and circumstance, creating portraits of characters through blocking and mood. It’s a transfixing showcase of Toronto and its menacing landscape just as much as it is for Villeneuve’s impressively controlled and darkly psychological style of filmmaking.
