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 original perception and made me appreciate it more on another level than the initial tense mystery. This makes a second viewing mandatory. 'Enemy' is a truly unique experience in storytelling worth dissecting.
