Enemy (2013)
First screened in April 2014
Director: Denis Villeneuve. Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Sarah Gadon, Mélanie Laurent, Isabella Rossellini, Tim Post, Joshua Peace, Kedar Brown. Screenplay: Javier Gullón (based on the novel The Double by José Saramago).

Twitter Capsule: Villeneuve goes Winding Refn in noodly but insinuating mood/character piece. Interesting acting exercise for Jake. Tarantula

VOR:   Weird, for sure, but where do you go from here? Hopefully a sketchbook for even richer risks to come. But maybe just a toss-off.
