Based on The Double by Nobel Laureate José Saramago, this film explores the troubled psyche of a man who is torn between his mistress and his wife. Jake Gyllenhaal gives a brilliant performance as both Adam and Anthony — a man and his double — engaged in a lethal and erotic battle.

Denis Vellenuve's Enemy with Jake Gyllenhaal is an intriguing film that reminds me of Kubrick at times. Lots of questions, few answers #tiff

Denis: very simple. This movie is about Jake Gyllenhaal's subconscious. #tiff

gregoryellwood ‏@HitFixGregory 3m
Enemy could be an internal battle between Jake's character, a statement on the Id and ego or whatever you want it to be. #TIFF2013

One thing is for sure, Enemy would make a great double bill with Under the Skin #TIFF2013

The OTHER Villeneuve/Jake Gyllenhaal movie, ENEMY, is insane. I have no clue what just happened but I am enjoying my confusion. #tiff

It is scary. RT @davidehrlich: ENEMY: for me this has without a doubt the scariest final shot in film history. not hyperbole. fact. #tiff

A marvelously mystifying riff on José Saramago’s The Double—itself inspired by the classic fable of the doppleganger—Enemy is a slow-burning metaphysical thriller that stays one step ahead of its audience. Though slim on story and slight on character, Quebecois filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (Incendies) has crafted a minimalist head-scratcher that stands in clever counterpoint to his bigger Hollywood thriller, Prisoners. If the director’s 2013 Warner Bros high-suspense drama has drawn comparisons to Mystic River and Zodiac, this smaller exercise comes across as a mix of Franz Kafka and The Twilight Zone.
