00:00enemy is one of the most confusing films
00:02i have ever seen upon first viewing i
00:04had a definite grasp on the central
00:06story i was easily able to decipher its
00:09hidden messages it was the added
00:11elements of spiders keys and surreal
00:14imagery that had me boggled it's now
00:16been over two months since i initially
00:18viewed the film and i feel at this point
00:20i've come to an accurate knowledge of
00:22its meanings so as i've done in the past
00:24let's get nerdy about enemy and talk in
00:27depth about its deep rooted symbolism
00:29and metaphors as a warning this review
00:32contains heavy spoilers so if you
00:34haven't seen the film yet i'd suggest
00:36watching my spoiler free review
00:38beforehand
00:39when i analyzed only god forgives i
00:42mentioned that certain elements of that
00:44film were open to interpretation i'd
00:46like to start this review out by stating
00:48a fact
00:49there is without a doubt
00:52correct and incorrect interpretations of
00:55enemy i've read many attempts at
00:57analyzing this film and some have proved
01:00wildly inaccurate
01:02no spiders are not taking over the world
01:05as some have stated
01:07no jake gyllenhaal does not have an
01:10identical twin as some have believed
01:13they are in fact the same person i'll
01:16back up all of these comments with
01:17statements from the filmmakers as well
01:19as my own personal interpretation let's
01:22start with a quote from denis the
01:24director himself so we're just getting
01:26everyone to explain
01:28their interpretation of the story
01:31basically i think that
01:33this movie is a documentary about my
01:34subconscious
01:37or
01:38a documentary about jake's skill in our
01:40self-conscious i think that the best way
01:42to describe it would be it's a dunyaka
01:45movie on acid
01:46or
01:48or a documentary about jake gyllenhaal's
01:51subconscious it's a man
01:53who decided to uh to leave his leave his
01:56mistress to go back to his pregnant wife
01:58and we see the story from his
02:00subconscious point of view from the
02:02mouth of the man who made the film this
02:05is a battle that's raging inside jake's
02:07mind
02:08but what could lead him to wage such a
02:11disturbing subconscious war with himself
02:14and what the hell are those spiders all
02:15about
02:17there are two versions of jake in this
02:18film history teacher jake and actor jake
02:22to avoid confusion this is how i will
02:24refer to them it's easy to tell the
02:26difference between the two history
02:28teacher jake is neurotic and messy his
02:31appearance always unkempt
02:33actor jake wears expensive clothing his
02:36hair always looks good and he wears a
02:38wedding ring
02:40the film opens with a voiceover from
02:41jake's mother she sounds concerned about
02:44the condition of his new apartment it's
02:46clear she's saying this on a voicemail
02:49we then get an insert of sarah gadden's
02:51character nude and pregnant then the
02:54words chaos is order yet undeciphered
02:58appear on screen a quote from the book
03:00which this film is based
03:02we immediately see actor jake holding a
03:05key entering a seedy sex club of some
03:08sort as men stand in silence watching
03:11women masturbate and other such things
03:13actor jake watches a woman present a
03:16large spider on a platter and she moves
03:19her high heel slowly above it about to
03:22squash it
03:24next we see history teacher jake his
03:26first words in his lecture to his class
03:28are control it's all about control
03:32he then begins to discuss dictatorships
03:35and how they censor any means of
03:37individual expression
03:39and then he says and it's important to
03:41remember this that this is a pattern
03:44that repeats itself throughout history
03:46this repeating pattern is mentioned
03:48quite often in the movie
03:50later on history teacher jake says it
03:52was hegel who said
03:54that all the great greatest world events
03:57happened twice
03:58and then karl marx added the first time
04:01it was a tragedy the second time
04:03to farce continuing in the vein of
04:06spider imagery the wires above toronto
04:08appear like a spider web he walks home
04:11and passes a mural of a man giving a
04:13roman fascist symbol
04:15defiance against rule dictatorships and
04:18fear of commitment are all themes that
04:21enemy has woven through it sometimes
04:23it's clear through dialogue other times
04:25through imagery the next few scenes make
04:28it clear that his life is immensely
04:29repetitious he gives lectures that just
04:32come off as memorized he has sex with
04:34his girlfriend played by melanie laurent
04:36his apartment is literally empty all he
04:39seems to have is a bed and a computer
04:41soon a co-worker recommends a film to
04:43him seemingly out of the blue without
04:45any real build up to this conversation
04:48history teacher jake decides to rent
04:50this film at a local video store
04:52take note of the song playing in the
04:54store
04:55it's called the cheater it's lyrics
04:57telling the story of a man who has no
04:59business being with women because he
05:01can't control his urges to sleep around
05:05after watching the film and then
05:06attempting to force himself on his
05:08unwilling girlfriend he dreams about the
05:10film he just saw
05:12in the recesses of his mind he sees
05:14someone who looks exactly like him in
05:16the film
05:17he wakes and skims through the movie
05:19finding the shot it's very clear that
05:21the actor portraying the bellboy looks
05:23just like him and he becomes obsessed
05:26with meeting this man
05:28he compares a noticeably torn photo of
05:30himself to the actor probably a
05:33post-breakup photo with the woman he
05:35took the photo with torn out he begins
05:38doing research about the actor finding
05:40the other films he had a part in when he
05:42goes to rent the other films take note
05:44of the poster attack of the 50-foot
05:47woman
05:48this leads him to the talent agency of
05:50actor jake where he has a conversation
05:52with the security guard who recognizes
05:54him saying man you haven't been around
05:56here for ages
05:58yeah i don't know how long it's been six
06:00months i'd say
06:02six months
06:03or more he's given a package meant to go
06:06to actor jake which allows him to find
06:08his address and phone number when he
06:10tries to call the woman on the other
06:12line recognizes his voice thinking that
06:14history teacher jake is really actor
06:17jake playing a joke
06:19after a series of awkward calls history
06:21teacher jake finally reaches actor jake
06:24and tries to convince him that they need
06:25to meet
06:27it's now that we meet actor jake and we
06:30see what his life is like
06:31he's healthy he wears nice clothes
06:34he loves blueberries and his wife is
06:37unfairly suspicious of him questioning
06:39him about the phone call that he just
06:41had and accusing him of lying to her
06:44when she asks are you seeing her again
06:47he explodes at her saying it was a man
06:49it's clear that actor jake although
06:51cleaner and more well-off is dealing
06:54with fear of commitment and also feels
06:56as if his freedom has been removed by
06:59his pregnant wife it's also clear that
07:02he has been unfaithful in the past since
07:04she used the word again as if it has
07:06happened before
07:08this would explain why in the opening
07:09scene he was visiting a sex club he is
07:12afraid of the responsibility of starting
07:14a family and being in a committed
07:16relationship
07:18this is extremely important to
07:20understanding the meaning of the film
07:21including the spiders
07:24next history teacher jake and actor jake
07:26agree to meet at a hotel they both feel
07:29the need to see each other as if they
07:31have some uncommon connection
07:33actor jake's wife soon appears at
07:36history teacher jake's school and her
07:38look upon seeing him as one of extreme
07:40sadness and pain
07:42then history teacher jake asks her a
07:44question
07:45which reveals even more how many months
07:48are you
07:50six
07:54that's nice i find it very interesting
07:56that actor jake hasn't been to his
07:58talent agency in six months and his wife
08:00is also six months pregnant
08:03this adds to the idea of actor jake
08:05having extreme commitment issues most
08:08likely brought on by fear of being
08:10controlled or dictated
08:13by a woman and child
08:15when history teacher jake gets up she
08:17attempts to call him and the filmmaker
08:19makes it very obvious that actor jake
08:22answers after he disappears from frame
08:25leaving the possibility that they are
08:27the same person out there this is
08:29clearly not a fantasy or delusion going
08:32on inside the mind of his wife but it is
08:34a psychological disorder of sorts for
08:37the two jakes
08:39later when she's home actor jake returns
08:41supposedly from a run complaining that
08:44they are out of his favorite organic
08:46blueberries
08:47she lays on the couch sad and afraid
08:50saying how the man she saw at the school
08:52looked exactly like him what's happening
08:55she says
08:56and when he says he doesn't know what
08:58she's talking about she replies
09:01i think you know
09:03i feel that she is slowly discovering
09:06that her husband's mind has split
09:09she wants him to come to terms with it
09:11and accept this fact
09:13which is why she appears so emotionally
09:15bothered by it i mean logically if you
09:18found out that your spouse had someone
09:20out there who looked identical
09:22would you be so emotional about it
09:24crying and everything it'd be weird for
09:27sure but it's clear to me what she's
09:29really concerned about is that they are
09:31literally the same person and she's hurt
09:34and scared by the fact that she's driven
09:36him to this state
09:38this is when we get our next spider
09:40vision a woman with a spider head passes
09:43by him as he walks
09:45he has this dream after his wife is
09:47questioning him about his real motives
09:49and tries to get him to explain
09:50everything to her
09:52history teacher jake is now walking down
09:54the hall of the hotel he's agreed to
09:55meet actor jake in
09:57we see two shots of a sexily dressed
09:59woman walking past him similar to how
10:02the woman with the spider head passed
10:03him in his dream
10:05next the two meet comparing themselves
10:08noticing they both have an identical
10:10scar
10:11history teacher jake gets spooked and
10:13leaves but not before giving actor jake
10:16the package the talent agency gave him
10:19the next two shots focus on the
10:21characters dealing with the stress of
10:23this situation and eventually actor jake
10:26begins to follow history teacher jake
10:28noticing melanie laurent and following
10:31her as well
10:32how would actor jake know exactly where
10:34to find history teacher jake
10:37these questions aren't necessary since
10:39the large majority of this film takes
10:41place in the subconscious of the lead
10:43character's mind as he battles to accept
10:46his actual reality
10:48while on the train actor jake has a
10:50moment in which he gawks at melanie from
10:52head to toe but he quickly turns around
10:54trying to deal with the temptation
10:57as a man he has obvious issues with
10:59being faithful
11:01this scene ends with one shot of actor
11:03jake relaxed in his chair
11:05appearing in deep thought his wife
11:08asleep next to him
11:10did this entire scene take place in his
11:12mind
11:13was he roaming the recesses of his mind
11:16trying to learn about this other version
11:19of himself
11:20next history teacher jake visits his
11:22mother explaining the situation to her
11:25it's clear it's history teacher jake
11:27since he's not wearing his wedding ring
11:29his mother says the last thing you need
11:32is to be meeting strange men in hotel
11:33rooms
11:36you have enough trouble sticking with
11:37one woman don't you this adds to my
11:39earlier assumption that jake has been
11:41unfaithful in the past his mother offers
11:44him some blueberries but he says he
11:45doesn't like them
11:47of course you do she says
11:49it's clear that history teacher jake is
11:51repressing memories of his actual self
11:54attempting to escape the person he is
11:57due to fear of commitment and the desire
11:59to be unfaithful
12:01she says he has a nice apartment a
12:02respectable job and that he should quit
12:05his fantasy of being an actor
12:07now there's a lot of interesting things
12:09there the movie opens with her saying in
12:11a voicemail that she doesn't like his
12:14apartment
12:15but now she's saying it's nice
12:17she's saying he has a respectable job
12:20since she says he has a respectable job
12:22but that he should quit his acting
12:24fantasy this leads me to believe his
12:26acting job has gone nowhere
12:29those three films he was in led to
12:31nothing
12:32so that would mean he's actually a
12:34history teacher right
12:36this would lead me to believe that
12:37earlier
12:38when his wife says she went to his work
12:41that she was in fact starting to realize
12:43the magnitude of her husband's psychosis
12:46and was desperately trying to connect
12:48with him to try and help by going along
12:50with his illness acting like she didn't
12:53know that he is a teacher in real life
12:56after this scene we see a giant spider
12:58roaming toronto this has also left many
13:01perplexed what does this huge creature
13:04signify i will explain this at the end
13:07when i get in depth about the spiders
13:10soon actor jake is practicing something
13:11he will say to history teacher jake
13:13asking himself in the mirror over and
13:15over if he had sex with his wife once he
13:18actually confronts history teacher jake
13:20history teacher jake can't even bring
13:22himself to say that he didn't sleep with
13:24actor jake's wife
13:26an argument ensues and a deal is made
13:29actor jay gets to take history teacher
13:31jake's girlfriend out on a date and then
13:33he says he will disappear from his life
13:36forever then they will be even
13:39i believe he's intentionally starting a
13:42war with his subconscious in an attempt
13:44to eliminate the negative parts so he
13:47can be with his wife in reality and
13:49remain faithful and be even
13:53as one person again
13:56history teacher decides to go to actor
13:58jake's wife now as this inward battle
14:00occurs in his mind
14:02i believe the real life jake
14:05is the one who has now gone back home to
14:08his wife
14:09as the narcissistic unfaithful actor
14:11jake is taking out the girlfriend in his
14:14mind he gets the doorman to let him into
14:17his apartment the doorman just so
14:19happens to be a man who was in the sex
14:22club in the opening scene
14:24he mentions to history teacher jake that
14:26he wants to go back to the sex club
14:28again he mentions the lock to the sex
14:31club has changed and that new keys have
14:35been sent out
14:36history teacher jake seems unsure of
14:38what he's referring to but goes along
14:40with the conversation anyway
14:42history teacher jake even walks too far
14:45past his apartment door before the
14:47doorman lets him in
14:49he appears to be discovering things in
14:50his apartment for the first time as he
14:52attempts to resemble actor jake waiting
14:55in his bedroom seeing the blueberries in
14:57the fridge
14:58this is when history teacher jake
15:00notices the photograph
15:02it is identical to the torn one he had
15:05in his possession earlier except this
15:07one isn't torn and shows his wife next
15:10to him
15:11when she arrives home he nervously
15:13attempts to act like he belongs
15:15during this we see actor jake attempting
15:18to get lucky with melanie in some hotel
15:20somewhere
15:21history teacher jake gets in bed with
15:23his wife nervous about taking his
15:25clothes off she looks at him longingly
15:28places his hand on her pregnant belly
15:30then embraces him asking if he had a
15:34good day
15:35at school
15:37this takes him off guard and she tells
15:39him to forget it going to sleep
15:42this also supports my earlier assumption
15:44that she knows he actually is a history
15:46teacher which would explain why his
15:48mother said he had a respectable job i
15:50just feel like she was trying to help
15:52him by going along with his psychosis
15:54actor jake and melanie are having sex
15:57and she gets extremely upset when she
15:59notices the sun tanned mark of a removed
16:01wedding ring on his finger
16:03interestingly history teacher jake wakes
16:06up in bed with his wife at this exact
16:08moment
16:09suddenly melanie wants nothing to do
16:12with actor jake and she storms away
16:14actor jake begins driving her home
16:17this is interspliced with scenes of
16:19history teacher jake pacing back and
16:21forth and eventually crying his wife
16:24comes to comfort him their hands
16:25interlocking he says through tears that
16:28he's sorry
16:29during this actor jake and melanie begin
16:31arguing in the car
16:33his wife tells him she wants him to stay
16:36and they begin to make love as actor
16:39jake and melanie's argument gets worse
16:41with her insulting him by saying he's
16:44not a man
16:45this makes actor jake snap leading to a
16:48terrible car crash we zoom in on the
16:50window of the car revealing the cracked
16:53glass resembling a spider web
16:56i feel that in this moment
16:58jake has successfully used his
17:00subconscious war to eliminate the
17:02negative self from himself
17:04his wife wants him to stay which tells
17:07us that they've been having a lot of
17:08problems with their marriage and she
17:10wants him to finally stay there and not
17:12be unfaithful to her anymore
17:15the next morning we hear a radio
17:17broadcast about an accident but who i
17:19will now refer to simply as jake turns
17:22it off before any details are mentioned
17:25his wife is in the shower and he's
17:27trying on a suit when he finds the
17:30package
17:31we've been shown this package constantly
17:33throughout this film
17:34he finally opens it finding a key
17:38he stares at it with a look of
17:39temptation his wife says his mother
17:42called he continues to stare at the key
17:45and asks his wife if she has something
17:47to do tonight because he has to go out
17:50then what some have called the scariest
17:52ending to a film they've ever seen
17:55happens
17:57helen
18:04alexa
18:05[Music]
18:18now the majority of audiences after
18:20initially screaming said the same three
18:23words
18:24what the [ __ ]
18:26it took me quite some time before i
18:28finally felt like i had a grasp of the
18:30story but i can confidently say that i
18:32do
18:33so what does all this mean
18:35well let's start with the spiders
18:38spiders in the film represent
18:41women
18:42at least in the way that jake views them
18:45he has a deep fear of commitment his
18:49wife is pregnant he's been unfaithful in
18:52the past as it was made clear when his
18:54wife asks if he's seeing her again and
18:57when his mother joke that he has had
18:59enough trouble staying with just one
19:01woman
19:02spiders in the real world catch prey in
19:05their webs they entangle what they are
19:08about to devour often times when mating
19:11the female spider actually kills the
19:13male afterwards and sometimes even
19:15before they begin to mate
19:18the film is in a way saying that jake's
19:20character feels he's lost his freedom he
19:24feels trapped within the web
19:26of his marriage
19:28and the weighty responsibility of having
19:30a child as well as remaining faithful
19:34the constant reference to dictatorship
19:36and being unwillingly ruled has to do
19:39with jake feeling that way about his
19:42marriage and eventual family in the
19:44opening of the film the narcissistic
19:47unfaithful actor jake gets into the
19:49private sex club with his key and
19:52watches a woman about to squash a spider
19:55through his unfaithfulness he longs to
19:58squash his wife so to speak or their
20:01love at least
20:02so he goes somewhere where that doesn't
20:05exist where him and other men can watch
20:08their sexual fantasies be acted out due
20:10to his fear of committing to his wife
20:13his dream of the nude woman with a
20:15spider head supports that women are the
20:17spiders as well and directly after that
20:19a woman who looked very sexy he was
20:21dressed almost like a stripper past him
20:23and he felt the sudden urge to go and
20:25look at that woman and i feel like that
20:28also supports the fact that he's just
20:30very unfaithful and he wants to be with
20:31a lot of women so how about that giant
20:34spider roaming toronto this scene took
20:36place directly after he met with his
20:38mother
20:39i believe this spider represents his
20:41mother here's something interesting
20:44this is a monument known as the mother
20:46spider
20:47guess where it's located
20:49ontario canada where the film takes
20:52place
20:53they look kind of similar don't they
20:55so how about that final spider
20:58why did his wife turn into a huge
21:00freaking spider
21:01why did the spider react in fear
21:05and why was his look
21:07one of almost
21:08exceptive disappointment
21:11as if he has just come to terms with
21:13what his life is like
21:15when jake opened the package
21:17taking out the new key
21:19he realizes it's the key to the sex club
21:22he gets a look of temptation on his face
21:25and immediately decides he has to go
21:28there telling his wife he has to go out
21:30tonight
21:31suddenly his wife is no longer answering
21:33him as she calls to her
21:35and when she is revealed to be a spider
21:38she backs up in fear of
21:41getting squashed
21:44jake was able to successfully eliminate
21:47the unfaithful narcissistic portion of
21:50himself
21:51but at the first sign of temptation he
21:54goes back to his adulterous ways
21:57this is why she reacts in fear
22:00jake is a spider killer
22:03he can't control his urges and can't
22:05commit to a healthy relationship
22:08or to the eventual family he will have
22:11which he views as almost like a
22:13dictatorship
22:14which is something he is defiant to
22:18the attack of the 50-foot woman poster
22:21the song the cheater playing in the
22:23store
22:24his torn photo of him and his wife
22:27all support that version of himself was
22:30haunted by fear of women his
22:32unfaithfulness and his attempts to ruin
22:35his marriage
22:37so why the look of accepted
22:39disappointment
22:41remember earlier in the film when
22:42history teacher jake said this and it's
22:45important to remember this that this is
22:47a pattern
22:48that repeats itself throughout history i
22:51believe jake has realized he's
22:53restarting the same pattern he's
22:55repeating his same mistakes almost
22:57instantly upon moving on from them at
23:00the first sign of temptation
23:02interestingly the film ends with him
23:05missing a call from his mother and
23:08begins
23:09with his receiving a voicemail from her
23:12also remember this it was hegel who said
23:16that all the great greatest world events
23:18happened twice
23:20and then
23:21karl marx added the first time it was a
23:23tragedy the second time
23:25to farce i believe after having finally
23:28gotten over his adultery and moving on
23:30from that initial tragedy
23:33he now realizes this repeating process
23:36is just going to be a joke eventually a
23:39farce
23:40an unavoidable negative of his life he's
23:43just going to have to deal with
23:45think about it as humans when we
23:48constantly deal with a problem of some
23:50kind that doesn't go away
23:52eventually we begin to accept it and
23:54sometimes we even look for the humor in
23:57it
23:58so lastly what does the film's title
24:00mean
24:01who is the enemy
24:03he is the enemy is himself his desires
24:07his fears his inability to have a normal
24:10relationship
24:11and these things will eventually lead to
24:13the destruction of his sanity his
24:15marriage and possibly even his life
24:18i'm an optimist though so i like to
24:20think that he works things out often
24:22fictional movie worlds somewhere
24:25enemy in my opinion is a masterpiece of
24:28cinema
24:29a film that actually requires serious
24:32thought
24:33i love it and i am so glad to have
24:35finally come to what i feel is an
24:37accurate understanding of it
