Adam Bell is a glum, disheveled history professor, who seems disinterested even in his beautiful girlfriend Mary. Watching a movie on the recommendation of a colleague, Adam spots his double, a bit-part actor named Anthony Clair, and decides to track him down. The identical men meet and their lives become bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined. Gyllenhaal is transfixing as both Adam and Anthony, provoking empathy as well as disapproval while embodying two distinct personas.
Mystery Thriller - This is a very slow and strange thriller that features Jake
Gyllenhaal in a dual role, and his fans will enjoy this big showcase.
All other actors have very small roles. Language and constant sex
make the film not for children.

Roger EbertFull Review Above Average 'Enemy' obviously stands apart from the traumatic real-world political and criminal traumas of its two predecessors.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Gadon has a slightly more fleshed-out role, but the film belongs to Gyllenhaal, who embodies the meek and passionless Adam as believably as he does the arrogant, self-absorbed Anthony.
NY PostFull Review Poor Jake Gyllenhaal is his own 'Enemy' in murky thriller.
