Enemy (2013)

Directed by: Denis Villeneuve
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Sarah Gadon, Mélanie Laurent, Isabella Rossellini.
Release date: October 27, 2013 (Abu Dhabi Film Festival)

With his latest thriller, director Denis Villeneuve further cements his position as a master filmmaker and auteur. With Enemy, he continues to employ the fearless but precise form of story-telling that has become his mark, engaging the eyes, ears and mind of the audience in a complete visceral experience. It is more complex and spatial than his previous two films – Incendies and Prisoners, both top-notch thrillers in their own right – leaving the audience with a lot to think about and dissect.
