Ah, the long awaited, buzzed-about 'Enemy'! Ever since it premiered at Toronto last September I've been longing to see it. Directed by Denis Villeneuve ('Prisoners', 'Incendies'), based on a novel by Jose Saramago ('Blindness'), and starring Jake Gyllenhaal in not one but two roles as a seemingly disturbed history teacher who finds out he has a doppelganger and then tries to track him down, this dark and atmospheric mystery was rumored to be a bit of a head trip. Well, that was an understatement! WTF? is the question that jumps to mind. I very much enjoyed the build up and the air of suspense and confusion throughout, but I can't help but feel slightly dissatisfied by the ending. It's almost as if the last reel were missing from the theater. Or perhaps it's just art.
Who is this movie for? Those that like their films dark, mysterious, and don't feel cheated by abrupt endings and unresolved questions.
