Movies: Jake Gyllenhaal² in 'Enemy'

Jake Gyllenhaal can't believe his eyes and doesn't see eye to eye... with Jake Gyllenhaal


Have you ever read Jose Saramago's "Blindness"? That genius novel, about a sudden epidemic that renders the whole world blind, is hugely unsettling in content. It's also experimental in form. No character is named, the two protagonists are only referred to as "The Doctor" and "The Doctor's Wife", and punctuation is so scarce that there's nothing to guide you; you have to feel your own way through the blocks of words. The film version in 2008, which starred Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore, was too traditional in execution and couldn't capture the mad confusion and haunting power of the book. I haven't read Saramago's novel "The Double" upon which the new film Enemy is based but no one is playing it safe in the transfer this time. This is the kind of movie that feels like a true transfer of surreal text to visuals.

Who is Jake Gyllenhaal playing and why are there two of him?

The incomplete answers are AFTER THE JUMP...

Double Bearded Jake Gyllenhaal Goodness In 'Enemy' Trailer: VIDEO


Dubbed a "haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller about duality and identity, where in the end only one man will survive," Enemy pits professor Adam Bell against his exact look-alike, an actor named Anthony Clair. Through a series of improbable events, their lives become entangled after Bell tracks down Clair, and in the end only one will live. 

That's not important. What is important is that this is a film filled with 90 minutes of scruffed-up Gyllenhaal, in stereo. The movie is set to hit theaters on March 14th and DirecTV on February 6th.

Movies: Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal Anchor Tense 'Prisoners'

Hugh gets his very own "IS THAT MY DAUGHTER IN THERE" Mystic River-style freakout


Thanksgiving in movies is usually overstuffed with dysfunction and hostility. Who can digest from all the bile at home? That's not the case in PRISONERS, the new dramatic thriller from undersung Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies), which is more retrograde in its approach with the family unit as something sacred and continually under attack. Despite the occassional interjection of ominous music (shut up Jóhannsson... there's plenty of time for your score later!) and an initially drab grey color palette, things seem realistically jovial at this get together.

The Dovers (Hugh Jackman + Maria Bello) are celebrating the holiday at the home of the Birches (Terrence Howard + Viola Davis) just down the street -- close enough to walk -- as they clearly do every year (or perhaps they trade off). The parents are realistically both amused and vaguely annoyed by their children, attentive but 'don't bother me' tired. It's only when the film leave the homes of the Dovers or Birches that there's trouble brewing... somethings just off. Why did the movie open with a father/son hunting trip? Why is that strange RV parked on the road? Where did Anna's (Hugh's daughter) red emergency whistle go?

Are Joy and Anna back yet? The two youngest children just went back to the Dovers to grab that red emergency whistle they wanted to p... ohmygod where are Joy and Anna?
