Highly recommend this film.

Yes it's quite dark but nothing too sinister, great acting and script and it's just one of those films that keeps you guessing about where it's going 8)

Love this film. It might be a tad OTT (or maybe it isn't!), but I dare say there are people out there like Louis Bloom, and fair play to him, he chose what he wanted to do and succeeded, even if his methods were highly questionable! Well payed by Jake Gyllenhaal.

Finally got round to watching Enemy after your recommendation David. I enjoyed it, the missus a little less so. Quite arty and well directed, plus is keeps you guessing - so for me a hit but for some it might be a bit slow. 8)

Yes, it's not one for those who don't like slow burners, but I just love the whole ambiguity of it. Watching the extras gives a bit of insight into its meaning, although I like films I have to think about, and it's sometimes better to not understand as it makes you think all the more.
