A mind twister that left me indifferent

“The last thing you need is meeting strange men in hotel rooms.”

“Enemy“. Directed by Denis Villeneuve and Jake Gyllenhaal in a leading role (or roles). Hell yeah ! The director and one of the protagonists of “Prisoners” . This has to be be an excellent movie since I’ve put “Prisoners” in my personal top 10 of reasonable brilliant movies in 2013. This was a slightly incorrect assumption

A few tips before you watch this bizarre and very strange movie.
Don’t call the electronics shop, where you recently purchased your ultramodern 55″ LED TV, in a panic and don’t start screaming at the helpdesk employee because the RGB color settings are severely screwed up and they need to replace the unit immediatly. Trust me, the color palette that you get to see on your TV the entire mov...

Wahnsinn

Die Stärke des Kanadiers Denis Villeneuve sind die brutalen Konflikte des realen Lebens. Enemy ist anders. Der Film nimmt eine traumhafte, subjektive Perspektive ein. - In José Saramagos Romanvorlage wird Chaos als noch nicht aufgelöste Ordnung verstanden. Jake Gyllenhaal spielt Adam, einen gelangweilten Geschichtsprofessor. Er verrichtet sein Tagwerk, hält langweilige Vorlesungen und hat freudlosen Sex mit seiner Freundin ­Mary (Mélanie Laurent). Sein Apartment wirkt so leer, als ob niemand darin wohnen würde. Adam fehlt etwas. Eines Abends aber schaut sich Adam einen Film an und bemerkt, dass eine der Figuren (die eines Hotelpagen) exakt so aussieht wie er selbst. Der Schauspieler Daniel Saint Claire, der im wirklichen Leben Anthony Claire heisst, spielt den Pagen. Adam ruft den Schausp...

Watch it Twice!

'Enemy' is a terrific display of direction and acting. The film uses every bit of screen time to tell as much of it's story visually. The mystery is involving because of the straightforward approach and the constant tense atmosphere. It kept me on edge every single second. This is great filmmaking, period. The ending is abrupt, but it feels weirdly resolved by that point. The final moment is strange. However, it does make sense when you go back and analyze the proceedings. All of the clues as to what the story is really about are in plain view throughout. I started to piece together these moments that I questioned earlier and came to the conclusion of the film's real meaning. And I looked online to see what others had interpreted. What I came up with completely changed my origi...

Do You Know the Enemy?

Enemy is really Jake Gyllenhaal's chance to flex his acting muscles and thanks to a twisting somewhat creepy (and slightly incoherent) effort from director Denis Villeneuve, those muscles get put to the test. It it a film ripe with symbolism and may take a few repeat viewings to understands, but the effort is worth the extra time.

We are given a view into the lives of two men: it opens with a voyeuristic scene set in some underground sex club before taking a completely different turn as we enter the life of a lonely history teacher (who lectures on the role of repetition throughout history). But both men are represented by Gyllenhaal. We soon learn both men also have relationship issues - the professor meets up often with his girlfriend, but their relationship is quite detached and co...

The Cheater.

One's repetition is one's own enemy.

Enemy is one of the most peculiar, distant, cruel and incoherent films I have ever experienced, and I mean that in the absolute best way.

Denis Villeneuve is a director whose attention I have always admired. Attention to detail, attention to symbolism and attention to keeping up tension and interest constantly. Prisoners was one of my favorites of last year for its outstandingly layered plot and deciphering of the mystery.
This film is that mystery, undeciphered.

What makes it such a treat to watch is how unsure of itself it is sometimes. To question the characters is paramount, but everyone knew that already. It had me guessing from beginning to end, over and over again, in so many ways, which is everything I was expecting to see, borrowing ...
