The ultimate modern mindbender and my favorite Villeneuve movie. It's brooding, dark and creepy. Watching this there is a sense of depsair and emptiness that flows from the screen and hits you. Hard. Gyllenhaal is always amazing as an actor but he is even superior to usual in Enemy. Don't watch if you want a quick fix though, this film was made to torture your mind and being slowly digested.
I didn't understand the ending can anyone explain the stupid ending to me.
If you've got an idea for a weird narrative set to the backdrop of Toronto looking like a nightmare while also having all this weigh on the shoulders of Jake Gyllenhaal's acting ability, you've clearly made a good film.
