Movie Review: Enemy (2014)

“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” -Karl Marx Last year’s excellent Prisoners was a breakout hit for director Denis Villeneuve.

After directing some of the most powerful Southern Gothic tales of the 2000′s, Green did a series of Team Apatow flicks that were more-or-less exactly what you’d expect from Rogen, Franco, and co. (although Danny McBride has been acting and producing with Green since the(…)
