When I went into Enemy, I knew a few things. I knew I was going to enjoy Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance, and I knew that I was going to see a very meaningful movie. I also knew it wouldn’t be easy to understand, and it would have hidden meanings. What I didn’t know, was that this movie is based on José Saramago’s novel, and that it has one of scariest jump scares I have ever encountered.
Before I start with the actual review I just want to point out that this is, and forever will be, the cutest dog ever! I appreciate the characteristics this dog embodies, he looks a bit scruffy and yet, the personality is just impeccable – plus, how is it that even dogs can embody so much emotion? I could talk about this dog for hours. I guess it’s because I just wanna give it a hug and have deep conversations with him like Ewan McGregor’s character had. I think he will be a good listener and the fact that he looks intelligent will probably mean he would give great advice. But enough about the dog now, I need to talk about Beginners, which is a slightly dark comedy that tackles a fresh topic with much heart and a bit of humor.
