‘Enemy’ DVD Review

7 February 2015 12:54 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jake GyllenhaalMélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini, Joshua Peace, Tim Post, Kedar Brown, Darryl Dinn, Misha Highstead, Megan Mane, Alexis Uiga | Written by Javier Gullón | Directed by Denis Villeneuve

What would you do if you found a person who is your exact copy? Would you hunt this doppelgänger down and try to connect with them and risk the result being not what you expected? Enemy is a film that on face value looks at this situation, but when you look at it deeper is so much more.

When Adam Bell (Jake Gyllenhaal) a history lecturer is given a film recommendation he notices an actor who looks very much like him.  Researching the star known as Anthony Claire (also Gyllenhaal) Adam decide to try to contact him, but when they finally meet he realises his mistake.  Soon the actor becomes obsessed with the history teacher and what he can »

Hey, Toronto! Win Tickets To Alex de la Iglesia's Perdita Durango!

4 February 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Hey, Toronto! Twitch is proud to present Dancing With The Devil - an extensive retrospective of Spanish maverick Alex de la Iglesia unspooling at the Tiff Bell Lightbox. Things continue this week with a February 7th screening of his Perdita Durango and we want to give you tickets!De la Iglesia made an ambitious bid for the English-speaking market with this balls-out adaptation of Barry Gifford's 59° and Raining. A typically grim Giffordian tale of mad love, hot cars and ultraviolence, the film stars Rosie Perez as the title heroine (previously played by Isabella Rossellini in David Lynch's Wild at Heart), who hooks up with lusty, loose-screwed bank robber/witch doctor Romeo Dolorosa (Javier Bardem, sporting another in his long line of bizarre haircuts) and joins him...

Enemy DVD review

2 February 2015 8:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the tense and very strange drama-thriller, Enemy. Here's Ryan's review of a hypnotic movie...

A jaundiced sense of unease hangs over director Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy like a fog, and that’s before the first spider’s crept into the frame. From its noir-ish opening to startling end, it’s a riddle wrapped up in an eerie enigma.

Jake Gyllenhaal, who put in an engagingly twitchy performance in Villeneuve’s previous feature Prisoners, takes on a dual role here. First, he plays Adam, a bearded, unremarkable history teacher who shuffles through life with the slightly pained expression of a chronic migraine sufferer. Adam becomes obsessed with Anthony, a jobbing actor whom he spots in some sort of breezy romantic comedy called Where There's A Will There's A Way. Disturbingly, Anthony looks exactly like Adam (because he’s also played by Gyllenhaal) and, like Adam, lives in Toronto. »

The Forbidden Room | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

Dreams! Visions! Madness!: Maddin & Johnson’s Extravagant Symphony of Silent Cinema Fantasia

Those familiar with the works of auteur Guy Maddin, sometimes referred to as the Canadian David Lynch, know to expect strange hybrids of silence film techniques mixed with zany weirdness that often reflect delightfully perverse and sometimes queer dynamics mixed in with its dashes of visual inventiveness and extreme narrative playfulness. While he still creates a healthy amount of short film projects and is involved with other installations in-between feature films, including several notable unions with actress Isabella Rossellini, who has starred in The Saddest Music in the World (2003), Keyhole (2011) and as narrator of the brilliant Brand Upon the Brain! (2006), his latest has been in gestation over a period of several years, at one point known as Seances and Spiritismes, and it was uncertain whether this would ever be a theatrical release. Known finally as The Forbidden Room, »

Beauty vs Beast: Legend In Blue Jeans

26 January 2015 8:34 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here, eyeing the white-out weather outside the window of my office as I write this to you from New York City - everybody stay safe on the East Coast over the next couple of days! It's apparantly gonna be a biggun, this storm. I know, here, I'll give you something to keep you warm - Paul Newman!

It's the 90th anniversary of Paul Newman's birth today. A few years back I'd have wagered he'd still be around to celebrate this one with us - he retained his youthful glimmer right up til the end - but it wasn't to be. His death was one that hit me hard -- he was "The Legend" of my youth, still going strong, still beautiful and affecting. But hey his lifetime love the great Joanne Woodward is still around, so let's all send our happy movie memory vibes her way. »

Sundance: ‘Pop-Up Porno’ Pokes Fun at Online Hook-Ups

22 January 2015 11:16 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine your most embarrassing sexual encounter, preferably one that started out on Craigslist or Tinder. Now picture how that cringe-inducing memory might look translated into an irreverent pop-up book. Yes, the same kind you grew up reading as a kid, complete with pull tabs, peekaboo shutters and elaborate 3-D fold-outs — cheeky, adults-only fold-outs.

That’s the idea behind Stephen Dunn’s Sundance-bound “Pop-Up Porno,” an infinitely expandable, viral-ready series of short films designed to scrub the shame from the nerve-wracking world of online dating. “I’ve been kind of perplexed lately by Grindr and this whole online dating world,” explains Dunn, who believes art comes from a place of vulnerability. “That’s where I get a lot of motivation for my work, as a way to overcome my own fears or insecurities.”

Last summer, as a break between projects, Dunn set about trying to collect the wildest online-dating confessions he could find, »

Movie Review – Enemy (2013)

2 January 2015 10:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Enemy, 2013.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon and Isabella Rossellini.

Synopsis:

A university lecturer seeks out his exact double after seeing him in a movie.

Taking its cue from a José Saramago novel, Enemy is a film that further displays evidence of Denis Villeneuve’s extraordinary ability to tackle essential psychological and philosophical concepts in compelling and provocative fashion. Following the flawed but ambitious first English language feature Prisoners and the incredible political/fantastic mind-map of Incendies, this film should confirm the Québec born Villeneuve’s status as one of cinema’s most in-demand directors…

Telling the richly metaphoric and symbolic journey of university lecturer Adam (Gyllenhaal) as he feels the pressures of a failing relationship with Mary (Laurent) and a studious but uneventful life, in many ways Enemy shows us a look beyond the mirror. Recommended a movie rental by a work colleague, Adam »

Enemy review: Jake Gyllenhaal leads sullen thriller

2 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Denis Villeneuve; Screenwriters: Javier Gullón; Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini; Running time: 90 mins; Certificate: 15

Jake Gyllenhaal and Denis Villeneuve teamed up to good effect in the tense thriller Prisoners, but before that they made the arty character study Enemy. Based on José Saramago's novel The Double, it sees Gyllenhaal play a college professor whose life gets flipped when he spots his doppelgänger as a background extra in an old movie.

Disinterested in his work and even more so in his long-suffering girlfriend (Mélanie Laurent), Gyllenhaal's Adam pursues his lookalike and discovers he's an actor called Daniel Saint Claire (now known as Anthony). This outgoing, charismatic alter ego lies in sharp contrast to the meek, internal Adam. The two lives eventually intertwine amid tarantulas, matching scars and swapped identities.

It all feels like a dark, surreal twist on a Twilight Zone segment - a sort »
