Brilliant! Enemy is open to several interpretations so keep an open mind. Not for everyone, but if you like working with mystery and the unconscious or dreams, this will slake your thirst.

This was definitely not my kind of movie. I am surprised that Jake Gyllenhaal took this role. It is something more like a John Cusack "let me dump something on you" kind of picture. Unless you are into movies like "Vanilla Sky" so you are in someone's psychosis, or some subliminal sexual fantasy, this is not for you. They should have saved the celluloid and just donated it to science. Sick, really sick movie. I most certainly would not recommend it.

disappointing film.
It made me think of some European Art film, odd and when you think they'll explain all at the end, nope, just a spider in a room, WTF!

If you enjoy really slow-moving films, if you enjoy being completely confused, if you enjoy watching a movie to the bitter end to try and make some sense of the movie ... and yet it doesn't ... this film is for you.
The only reason I gave a rating of 2 stars is I love Jake Gyllenhall and he's very good in this film, although you just have no idea what he's being good at. Spiders? Weird sex-spider clubs? Twins? Multiple personality disorder? Aliens? OMG ... no idea! I love weird, but this is weird with no purpose that I can see. I would not recommend it.

Horrible movie didnt go anywhere

What an absolute waste of time. Filmed mostly in the dark (why?), no logic to anything the characters do, the most ridiculous ending ever.

This movie is an absolute waste. Jake should pay more attention before accepting a part like this. "Zodiac" and some of his other work was much better

Strange film. Surreal, psychological mind game. I think the Jake Gyllenhaal characters are actually the same person. Notice early on that Adam finds a picture of himself to compare to Anthony's online photo and that picture appears later in the film at Anthony's apt. Not sure what was up with the tarantulas, except "what a tangled web we weave, when practice to deceive". The telephone lines in the city looked like a spider's web. All this said, I found the movie interesting, but still don't understand it.
