Probably the most baffling film I saw at this year’s Toronto Film Festival was Denis Villeneuve‘s Enemy. And that is “baffling” in terms of its deliriously fascinating narrative, not baffling as in “The fact Devil’s Knot was even made is baffling.”
The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal in dual roles as he plays a man torn between his mistress (Melanie Laurent) and his wife (Sarah Gadon). That is an easy enough way of putting the plot together, but there are several other little fascinating bits that make it all the more intriguing.
Here’s a snippet from my Toronto review:
The story is based on “The Double” by Nobel Laureate JosÃ© Saramago and A24 picked it up out of Toronto and I expect will be bringing it to theaters some time early 2014, but they’ve yet to set an official release date.
Today you can check out a clip from the film directly below and you can read my “B” review right here
