Worth ones time to appreciate how an Actor develops his Character.

I like the behind scenes stories. This is really good to watch. Without being too much of a spoiler alert as the cover shows he is playing two characters. Its probably better to watch this after the movie not to spoil what is happening but if one was to watch it before it [could/maybe] gives one a deeper appreciation to the acting Jake did in this movie. As far as the movie itself I can't say I loved it, it was slower than I'm drawn to, but after this Behind the Scenes I went back and watched it again.

Come on, Jake! Can you lighten-up already? Please?

Pity Jake Gyllanhaal. He took a hell of chance doing Brokeback, a movie that succeeded beyond anybody's wildest expectations to become a landmark of American cinema on a par with, say, The Graduate. And ever since Brokeback, Jake has doubled down his efforts to establish that (a) he's not an adorable sheep herder with a hankering for rodeo riders and (b) he actually is quite a Serious Actor who thinks Deep Thoughts about Important Topics.

That knowing grin when Ennis Delmar crawls into his sleeping bag could play at least as well in a hetero RomCom. Too bad Jake can't lighten-up and relax into a sort of thinking person's Bradley Cooper. Plus Jake's sister Maggie manages a nice mix of the arty and the fluffy (i.e., well-paid) roles. But sadly, no . . . apparently Jake still feels the need to prove something.

I am grateful, nonetheless, for this Prime freebie featurette/extended promo for Enemy, because I learned that I definitely do not need to watch a movie so heavily loaded with the symbolism of a divided self: apparently Jake freaks when discovers his secret, hidden nature in an exact doppelganger, and guess what? Der doppel is not a nice dude, and furthermore, somebody has to die. Yeah, really.

That will be a pass here, thank you.
