Post Enemy (2013)
Hi everyone. I just saw an online review from Chris Stuckmann, one of the online critics I see on Youtube about the film Enemy (2013), directed by Denis Villeneuve (who had also directed Prisoners), and it stars Jake Gyllenhaal.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2316411/?ref_=nv_sr_1

I was wondering if any of you have seen this film, as it looks intriguing. This looks like the kind of film JB would really appreciate.

Looks interesting. I'm a big fan of Jake Gyllenhaal's. Personally, I found Prisoners to be a bit overrated though it was well made and the mystery aspect of the movie absolutely did work for me. So I definitely will be looking forward to this.

I'm excited to see a shorter Villeneuve film, as Prisoners did get a little long. Looks good.

I'll see this eventually.

I watched Polytechnique not so long ago; good, very very tight movie. Did anyone see Incendies, this one or anything else by the director or just Prisoners?

Yeah, I've seen Incendies. It's good. The twist is pretty shocking and extreme.

I'm more or less in agreement with this. It's a fairly gripping story for most of its running length, but it runs a little high on melodrama at times. Which is okay.

apparently the ending is garnering a lot of talk.

IMDB sez it's playing a festival tomorrow. Available on DirecTV which excludes me. Possibly everyone else on the site.
