Enemy (2014)

Enemy is a dark and strange slow-burner, and one of the most boring films I've ever seen. Jake Gyllenhaal plays a disheveled history teacher who, while watching a movie at home, discovers a man that looks exactly the same as him.

At no point do the two men attempt find out how they look alike, exchanging birth dates, birth certificates, or ask their parents etc.. Which would be the natural reaction after making such a discovery.

He sets out to find this man and find out how this is possible. They meet, and he discovers his identical opposite is in effect his nasty alter-ego.

His opposite number then blackmails him into a night with his wife. That's basically it... the proceeding hour before that dragged out arduously, with Gyllenhaal shuffling from place to place, every night having sex with his girlfriend in his dump of an apartment.

I just understand the message the director was trying to get across, be it in an obscure and arty way. I'm a fan of indie and art cinema, but this film just didn't do anything for me. I'd also love to know what those spiders symbolized..?

The films only saving grace is it was well filmed, with a dark, melancholy style. Other than that Enemy is a strange, dark, gloomy and extremely boring indie film, which is neither interesting, clever or entertaining.
