Here's my theory: spoiler

Although its based on a book, so this is probably all demonstrably wrong.

The cast signed a confidentiality agreement that doesn't allow them to speak and/or explain to the press the meaning of spiders in the movie.

As bizarre as this movie is. What's stranger is that it's based on a book called The Double written by Jose Saramago in 2002. Another movie was made the same year (2013) with an identical premise as this directed by Richard Ayoade called The Double which is also based on a book of the same name, but written over a century early by a different author.

I don't know if that's all a happy coincidence or if this was planned for some reason. At the end of the day, however, I enjoyed The Double by Ayoade more.

Interesting concept, but even with the metaphor explanation, it still plateaus before, disappointingly, fizzling away into nothing.

And normally I'm all for beautiful colour schemes, but the yellow here quickly grew from interesting to oppressing, and not in a good way (in my humble opinion etc etc).

Great directing and everything. I think jake gyllenhaal is one hell of an actor.. sexy, persuasive and talented.

An introspective film based on Portuguese writer José Saramago's The Double starring Jake Gyllenhaal as both a listless history professor and his double, an actor the former finds in various bit parts on DVDs. Bizarre and ambiguous, Enemy owes as much to Kafka as it does to magical realism, with just a hint of Guillermo del Toro, a fable about identity and intimacy and how we might hate parts of ourselves. I don't want to say too much because ambiguity is a big part of this, and in any case, I still had questions at the end. I wish I'd watched it with other people. It's that kind of film. And lovely to see Toronto play itself - it's so rare - even as a smoggy dreamscape
