As post-production wraps on the much anticipated Blade Runner 2049, it’s an apt time to revisit one of the true curios of Denis Villeneuve’s career: Enemy. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Adam, a university lecturer nearing the end of his relationship with girlfriend Mary (Mélanie Laurent). One night, while watching an obscure film he’s stumbled across in a rental store, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his döppelganger, Adam tracks down the actor and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle that threatens to destroy both their lives.
