Enemy (2013) review – Jake Gyllenhaal Sees Double

One word: complicated. Enemy is the kind of film you have to see more than once. For me, a film that is hard to grasp makes it all the more intriguing.

The Strangers (2008)

It doesn’t seem right to call The Strangers a horror film, because it’s atypical and not particularly scary.

Just as Joel Barrish (Jim Carrey) does so, a part of me wishes I could wipe my own memories so I could watch this masterful film without knowing […]

Triangle (2009)

Triangle: how to talk about this movie without giving anything away?  Perhaps a good start would be to praise Christopher Smith for coming up with such a unique, mind-boggling story, that demands your attention. This brain twisting film starts out like any other. Jess (Melissa George) a single mother of an autistic son, goes on […]
