With the digital libraries of online streaming services expanding more and more, choosing which movie to watch has become difficult. I will be digging through these online queues in hope of bringing you a movie worth your time. This week we’re taking a look at Enemy, a cerebral drama directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners), starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and available on Amazon’s Prime Instant Video.
Before we get started, I feel it appropriate to warn you that this isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill flick; it’s metaphorical, layered, erratic, and sometimes downright confusing. In fact, if you go to Google and type ending, you get this:
That’s right. Lost, a show that has become the go-to example of a disappointing ending (Personally, I loved the ending.), and Gone Girl, a story which has left both its readers cursing their books and its moviegoers cursing Rosamund Pike are both trumped by people searching for Enemy. If that doesn’t sell you, hopefully a little plot will.
